One of the greatest blessings in my life has been fatherhood. Some days it’s hard, but it’s always worthwhile. Every parent messes up at times, sometimes royally, even the “greatest” of us. When we do, we ought not beat ourselves up, at the same time though, we should own up to our mistakes & work on them.
If we don’t own our mistakes, what example are we setting for our offspring? I am asking this on a personal level, as well as on a societal level as a whole. At the end of the day, the best we can do for our children is Love them dearly, and teach them well, what they do with that Love and those lessons is theirs to choose (and ultimately be responsible for).
