Words of Wisdom Come from Everywhere…
It’s sometimes tough being a parent because we want the best for our children, but many times we fall short in our attempts. They do not come with a manual. Although, my son went straight to the book store to look for one when they were expecting the first. I guess his military training makes him assume there is a manual for everything! LOL…He found one. Below is a good list to go by. Word of Wisdom are words of wisdom if they are written with reverent intent. Below is a blog I got that has some good words of wisdom. Namaste, The Queen Cronista….
Yet, through the grace and mercy of God—He equips us with everything we need to be the parents God wants us to be for our children.
