Motivation

Our children see this, and learn to imitate it.
Thomas Jefferson


Michael was cleaning a spill off the floor.
Eva found her own towel and started helping... doing just what daddy was doing.

New motivation: please make all of my actions worthy of her imitation.

that is a sweet photo.

sometimes it's scary that children mirrors our words and actions because they have no filter. it is a good reminder to 'make our actions worthy of their imitation.'

great post! very insightful.

WOW that is indeed, thought provoking.

Children are just wise little sponges, especially at this age. Soaking it all in, learning, watching, growing. Amazing.
