Trystan is such a blessing. No matter how hard life is, it truly is a blessing to have him. I want him to know I'm not perfect but the love I have for him will never change and I'm trying to be a better person for him.
When a child gives you a gift, even if it is a rock they just picked up, exude gratitude. It might be the only thing they have to give, and they have chosen to give it to you. I have gotten a lot of rocks from my sweet Jett.
Quote from a retired Disney princess, who was one of the first Snow Whites. When you are hugging a child, always be the last one to go. You never know how long they need it. Sometimes even us 'big kids' need those hugs , too.
I love my kids, but like I've told them, "I am not your friend, I am your parent. You HAVE friends. Too many kids have parents who want to be their friend, when what they really need is for their parents to act like PARENTS." My kids soo agree.
