Our children are our legacies, precious ornaments from God. They are not inconveniences or liabilities but assets to nurture, lead, protect and guide. Tomorrow’s leaders who are on assignment and temporarily in our care. Fleeting days, here today and gone tomorrow. Enjoy the moments, celebrate the days and maximize the years.
These are some of my favorite children quotes…let me know yours.
