May 25, 2011


Most parents already love their children unconditionally, but sometimes we need to be reminded just how special our children are in our lives. Children are a blessing from God! We as adults should tell our children every day how much we love them and remind them what they mean to us. Never take your child/children for granted! Love your children unconditionally as God loves us!!!

Today, I found out that my 14 year old niece ran away from home on Sunday evening. The news came as a complete shock as her picture began rapidly spreading over facebook. When my family received the news, we spent a few hours scouring the streets of our local town looking for her. Then it dawned on me that I probably would not even recognize her if I saw her, because it has been several years since I have seen her. Regardless, my family drove around town looking for the girl whose picture was plastered all over facebook.

How many times do we get angry with our children over petty little issues? How many times do we create standards for our children which are so high that we could never meet these standards as adults? How many times do we push our children to be involved in way too many activities when all they want to do is play and be a kid? The one thing a child wants the most is to be loved by his or her parents. They want the same unconditional love in which God gives us! Take the time to let your kid be a kid, and why not be a kid right along with your children. Love, love, love your children everyday, and tell them that everyday! NEVER take your children for granted!
