Today’s June Blogging Challenge topic: Most Proud Moment. I’m going to just lay it out there: my kids.
Not a moment, you say. No, that’s true. But if you’re a parent, you understand how difficult it is to choose one moment. A wedding? An award? A graduation? They are all wonderful achievements that give my heart wings.
But how can I place those moments above hearing my son’s tell each other, “I love you,” when they go separate ways? How can those moments overshadow hearing my kids say, “Yeah, that guy kinda bugs me sometimes, but Mom, he doesn’t have a lot of friends, and everyone needs friends,”? Hearing my daughter-in-law talk tenderly about caring for abused and neglected animals, and seeing her work hard to help out her parents when they need her.
These are my proudest moments. Not because of anything I did, but because God has allowed me to be a part of it all.
