We teach them how to eat, how to dress, how to brush their teeth.
We teach them manners, and how throw a ball, and how to fend for themselves.
We teach them how to appreciate art…through painting and music and literature.
We teach them to pursue their goals and that passion counts for something.
We are always teaching our kids.
But what are we learning from them?
Are we learning the value of being genuine?
Are we reminded that child-like faith actually has significance?
Are we learning that complicated words and complicated phrases often…complicate things?
Are we learning that simple joy’s give us greater perspective?
Slowly but surely, I’m learning these things from my kids…and my life is becoming richer because of it.
