In my previous post, I ended with wanting my children as adults to think, deliberate and look back with no regrets.
So that is more of what I discussed with a sister in law, what legacy we want to leave for our children. This is what I've been thinking about.
- I want my children to love my religion number one. I don't want them to come up with every excuse under the sun on why they didn't go to church on sunday, I want them to love to be there like me. Or maybe just love to serve like my husband.
- I want my children to love spending time with the family, to love being outdoors together
- I want them to be confident readers no matter what it takes, and enjoy learning their whole lives. You know that excitement all small kids have at learning new things, I don't want that to stop for them.
- Obviously I already said I want them to live a life of no regrets. But not a careless life, a life of confidence, a life where they are willing to step on a limb and try something hard, but worthwhile. I want them to be sure of who they are and what they want. Even if the specifics change from time to time.
- Once again, I want them to be independent I don't want them wards on anyone. I want them to feel capable and independent, to their own various needs and capabilities.
