Today’s final “kid bragging” post is a writing assignment that Katya did. It was deeply encouraging and humbling, especially to this mom who often finds herself at odds with her creative, independent, passionate daughter.
“My mom is a great role model for me for many reasons. To begin, my mom is a Christian woman. My mom shows that she is a Christian by disciplining me very well. Also, she teaches me about God and how to love God. Next, when I think of my mom I think about how loving she is. My mom comforts me when I am sad, and she is gentle when I am hurt or sick. Also, she encourages me in hard times and is patient with me when I am grumpy. Last, my mom is always joyful. I can see that she is joyful because she always wears bright colors. Also, my mom smiles a lot and loves everyone around her. I admire my mom as a role model.”
Some moments are so very hard, but then there are other moments that are so richly beautiful. Thanks, sweet girl.
