A little inspiration...

It’s not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can’t tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself.

~ Joyce Maynard


I found this awesome quote over on Writer Mama.

I'm still reaching...

That quote is so true! Love it. Now I just need to remember to lead by example and not by words.

That is such a neat quote. Every time I am having a bad mommy day, all I have to do is come to your blog and it reminds me how much I am blessed. Thanks!!

That is so true...we do have to lead by example. Having children does put your life in a different perspective.
Thanks for sharing that--I'm still reaching too!
