be twice the person i am

if there was one main goal that i desire for my child, it is for him to be twice the person i am.
and when i share this, i really don’t mean achieve more accolades or trophies or prizes or more stuff to put in a pretty house.

i want him to have an inner confidence that comes from a solid family foundation.

my goal is to help my boy take every opportunity he has in front of him, without fear or shame. i refuse to pass shame on to him or anyone.

i want him to have an inner confidence in who he is and why he is here. that he can ask questions, make mistakes but always, always remembers where he comes from and how much he is loved. 

isaiah – cultivate a true heart, give compassion freely, walk with integrity, be strong and take challenges head on, be true to yourself, faithful and creative. get excited about the unknown but with a faith and a confidence in your purpose and meaning. go get ’em kid.

sharing from a mother’s heart tonight.

reaching up

our boy is continuing to grow {funny that!} he is two months away from hitting the big two year mark and is now an avid grabber of things. he has some amazing strategies for gathering the things he wants from the spaces above.

i took the above picture quite by accident but it seems to epitomise the feelings i am pondering at the moment.


he is reaching for the future, and it’s happening too fast! he is still so vulnerable {and spirited!}

as his guardians and coaches, we want to hold the future in our hands but we can’t; we can guide and train. it sometimes just takes your breath away with the responsibility and amazing role we get to play as parents. what are we teaching, modelling and encouraging in his little heart?

the answers to these are what we yearn to hold but all we can do is share ourselves with him and be intentional in our wants and dreams.

do you have questions like this?
