I can’t tell you how it makes me smile when I get a text like this from one of my kids.
I try so hard to be mindful of the beauty in the world on a daily basis – something that doesn’t always come easy to me. But, I try. And I try to positively influence my kids so that it will come more naturally for them.
When I get a text like this, I know that they have internalized the message I am trying to send (or be an example of) and now they support and inspire me.
