How could I NOT want to be EVERYTHING for them? How could I NOT be willing to change my life for them? How could I NOT be willing to turn my back on the entire WORLD for them? How could I NOT exhaust my every resource for them? How could I NOT be willing to do WHATEVER it takes to be with them? How could I NOT put myself on the back-burner for them? How could I NOT want to know their little hearts and what they desire? How could I NOT pierce my own pride and do what it necessary for them? How could I NOT put my selfish wants aside to give them all that they need?
HOW COULD I NOT?? HOW COULD I NOT?? HOW THE HELL COULD I NOT TAKE THIS TASK AS SERIOUSLY AS I TAKE MY VERY LIFE?? HOW COULD I NOT TREAT THESE BLESSINGS AS GIFTS FROM GOD AND CARE FOR THEM AS SUCH??
THE ONLY PLACE, IN RAISING CHILDREN, FOR "SELF" IS IN MAKING SURE THAT YOUR "SELF" IS PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, EMOTIONALLY, AND SPIRITUALLY HEALTHY ENOUGH TO TAKE ON THE TASK! DADS GOTTA EAT TOO, RIGHT?? BUT DADDY WILL GO WITHOUT A BITE IF IT MEANS THE KIDS' BELLIES ARE FULL!!
Enough said.............I think!!
HAPPY HUMP DAY Y'ALL!! I LOVE YOU ALL, EACH AND EVERY ONE!!!
