I have the most amazing children-in-law; three sons-in-law and five daughters-in-law. I love each of these people as I do my own children. We might not always see eye-to-eye about everything, but my children have married well and their spouses have added rich blessings to the family and to my life.
In about six weeks our twenty-seventh grand baby will arrive via a mother-ship named Heather. Heather sacrifices a lot to bring her babies into the world. Maybe that’s why she treasures them so dearly. This year, one of the things Heather has sacrificed for her new baby boy is going on a family vacation — a Disney Cruise to Mexico. I know this has been a hard thing for she and her family to give up. We will miss them terribly and wish they were with us, but I, for one, salute Heather for her committment to her family and her desire to do the right thing. I truly hope that this is the last time we will have to leave any of our children home when we go on family adventures.
What are you willing to sacrifice for your children? What are you willing to fight for so that your children will have all the blessings you have in your life and more? We are living in a world upside down in its values. Our freedoms are being usurped and eroded everyday because so many principled people are blind to the evil that is corrupting our government. Are you willing to take a stand for your values and what you believe? Are you ready and willing to take an honest look at the scary stuff, do your research and take action for what you want to preserve or change?
Our way of life in this country is hanging in the balance. We can’t prepare for what is coming without information about where we are heading. If you are willing to sacrifice everything for your children, start by sacrificing your ignorance, your prejudices and your skepticism. Ferret out the truth of all things. It is possible to know what is true and what is false, but you can’t be lazy about doing your research.
Our children deserve to live in land free of religious and moral persecution. They deserve to have the same opportunities we have had to make something great with their lives. Let’s not deny them of these rights because of our unwillingness to uncover the truth.
Enjoy your children, find joy in your parenting.
