Psalm 127:3 “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.” When my children were young I was so ashamed of my parenting. It was such a dark place to be. Can you imagine how different my relationship with my kids is now that I see parenting as a reward! I want you to see parenting as a reward too, and one thing that helps me be a better parent, is REBEL Parents know, get to be good parents, they don’t have to be good parents. Saturday, March 14 I got a call informing me that my contract job was being canceled due to the lockdown… It was 6 months before I got steady work again, and let me tell you since that time, I’ve never “HAD” to go to work again. I GET to go to work!! WOO! So, how do you show this to your kids? Start by truly appreciating the time you have with your kids. I was at a friend’s house Saturday night watching the UFC fights. Lincoln came with me and was planning on spending the night with his friend. I left around 11:30pm. An hour later I got a text from Lincoln asking if I was “still up?” I knew what was coming. He wanted to be picked up. Now, I didn’t have to pick him up. He planned to spend the night, I was ready for bed, and it was 12 degrees out. Who wants to go out in that? ME! Of course I picked up my son at nearly 1:00 o-clock in the morning. Because, as soon as he gets his driver’s license, I’ll never get to do this again. The time slips by so quickly. Try not to wast it. Go tell your kids how much you love them and how much you love being their parent.
