Mrs. Anita Sedivy
Love is patient while sitting through countless carlines, providing assistance with math problems, and delivering forgotten lunchboxes to school–again.
Love is kind even when parental guidance seems rejected.
Love does not envy or compare a child’s abilities to my own or that of other children.
Love does not boast or dictate my child’s involvement in extracurricular activities to increase my own reputation.
Love is not arrogant or rude by keeping a mental list of ways my child has failed in the past. It extends arms of grace and forgiveness instead of expecting perfection. It does not ignore my personal shortcomings but seeks a child’s forgiveness.
Love does not rejoice in wrongdoing but administers discipline with sorrow over sin.
Love does not give up hope even when the struggles seem long.
So whether you are dealing with 2 a.m. feedings or up until 2 a.m. with a child finishing a science fair project this year, those things will all pass away. Love will last. Let’s grow together in showing love to our children this year.
