We all make choices in life. With every choice we make our lives can take a different path. I still believe that it only takes one person to make a difference. That our actions and words can impact those around us. With every choice I make I think of how will it effect those I love the most. I think of the choice of my children, I often hear myself speaking pearls of wisdom that I wish someone had told me! I wonder if I will push them to much.
K-1 struggles at time in school and has to work a little harder then K-2. I always tell him you can be as smart as you want to be. Knowledge is there for anyone willing to work hard enough to obtain it! That the things worth having in life are the things worth working for. No life lesson was ever learned the easy way. It is through the trials that we are refined and made stronger. I wonder how this all sounds to a 8 1/2 year old.
While I am hoping that any of it or all of it will stick with him. He is a smart, funny, courageous boy. He captivated me the moment he came into the world. But, I always feel like I am pushing him. I know this will turn out one of two ways. Either he will resent me for it, or he will love me for it. I sure hope that he loves me for it. I just cannot stand back and settle for anything but his best. I am willing to work hard for with him.
I know someday I will look back on all of this and think I was crazy, all the sleepless nights worrying about them and they are not even in Jr. High!
