Our Future Has Hope

Being a parent is the most incredible responsibility on the planet. We get to directly and powerfully influence the world the moment we get that baby in our arms… Scratch that, the moment we conceive! Our children will be the ones to make a dent in the future once we are gone, and we get to shape them and teach them how to make that dent, or no dent at all. 
My child, I’ve always loved you. Before I was born, it was set in the stars that you would be my baby. Time is irrelevant anyway, so I can say that. Time is there so we can understand the shape of life and how to move forwards, otherwise, it would be like putty in our hands. But I digress. 
Not enough is done to celebrate that intricate and delightful and very fragile relationship between the parent and the child. We’ve taken this interdependence for granted, a fact of life that will always be there and always had been. Because it has been wiped down to a fact, this amazing special-ness being taken away, we as parents have forgotten how to love and raise our children intentionally. 
We live alongside them, hugging them and taking care of them, but our hearts are busy with other things: survival, jobs, household cares, etc. 

           I say it’s time for a revolution of sorts.

Parents!!! Turn your hearts towards your children! Nothing will make your life so worth living as your kids. In no way or shape or fashion will your job affect the world the way you can through your kids! They are your legacy! What will you leave behind? A fantastic role or title? Who cares? A beautiful home or garden that no one will walk through in 100 years? You have the opportunity to affect the infinity of time by raising your children to be influencers of change so that they could raise their children to take the future and shape it and make it ready for great things to come that will only propel their future offspring to heights unknown. 
Do you know what the true problem in society is? Economy? The President? Your next door neighbor?
NO!
WE are! We lost touch with what is truly important. Family. Once we restore that unit to its new glory, we will be healthy again. Our society will be healthy again. Our country will be great again. 
My child, my heart is turned towards you and I will do everything in my power, although I may be imperfect, to love you-perfectly! You are my future. Through you, I will live on. Through you, our future has hope.
