Blessed are the Parents
Blessed are the parents who make their peace with spilled milk and mud, for of such is the kingdom of children.
Blessed are the parents who refuse to compare their children with others, for precious unto each is the rhythm of his own growth. (Note: A nice reminder to our homeschooling mothers.)
Blessed are the mothers and fathers, who have learned to laugh, for it is the music of the child’s world.
Blessed are those parents who understand the goodness of time, for they make it not a sword that kills growth, but a shield to protect and guide their children.
Blessed are the parents who can say “no” without anger; for comforting to the child is the security of a firm decision.
Blessed are the parents who are teachable, for knowledge brings understanding and understanding brings love.
Blessed are the parents who love their children in the midst of a hostile world, for love is the greatest of all gifts.
