We are Guardians of Their Light

Protecting the inner light of our children is more important than 99% of the things parenting is usually about.

Right after reading this blog I went straight to my 18 yr old daughter and told her that she’s a firefly.

I walked with her arm in arm to the kitchen as she went to fetch a glass of chocolate milk.

I said “Kiddo I want to tell you that you remind me of a Firefly.”

She said “Why, because I’m like a really good SciFi show that got cancelled after 2 seasons?” – she’s very funny!

I said “Yes, of course… And because you shine from within.”

She got her trademark little smile on her face and just said “Cool”

I feel so blessed.

There’s nothing like putting learning into immediate action!
