Appreciate the simple moments and be there

Things don’t always seem to be easy, better yet sometimes not easy at all. As parents we try so hard to be there for our kids and some of us as parents would do anything possible or in our minds impossible for them. The flip side is majority of the time they do not see and or appreciate it or the thoughts of it, and that brings about a sense of failure within you as a parent thinking how much more can I do to let them see and know you are there for them.

No matter the age or sex of a child within that child, is YOUR child, your kid, your son, your daughter
Some of us are weaken by the strength we put out to help our kids, yes it’s exhausting but to see a glimmer of hope and smile of encouragement, that’s a step towards greatness and appreciation developing within them. It is a reward of energy for us to use again towards them as they will need it again. Be there no matter how much they sometimes make you feel less than you should, as you know more, no matter how much you tell them or show them, that you love them no matter what.

Be there when they are weakened by their growth towards becoming an adult, as only we know how hard it can be, be there when they feel all hope is gone, as we know ever too well the feeling of failure and demise, be there as they too get their heart broken and they have yet to learn how to mend it, as again, we invented the art of healing broken hearts. As a single parent we have been there and as a single parent we had to patch up old wounds and move on to a better place, we have them to consider we fight for them to be the man or woman they will be someday.

Never give up.
