Today's Inspiration - A Note From SuperDad: I took my younger son out to dinner the other night, just me and him. He's still in elementary school and at the age where he wants to be just like me.
He was so excited about the one on one time that he chattered non stop throughout the meal, covering everything from new vocabulary words he's learned, math class, the war of 1812, how he wants to learn about WW1, Jiu jitsu, comic books, etc...
When we got home he raced upstairs and grabbed a pile of video games and asked me to choose one to play together.
After my wife and older son got home, he claimed the seat next to me on the couch as we watched TV together. He was determined to get every last ounce out of our special time together
Let me tell you something if you don't have kids and you're wavering on it due to worries about expense or losing your freedom--NOTHING is better than an evening like that with your kid, not a new car or an expensive vacation or a job promotion.
If you've ever come home to a pet dog furiously wagging its tail because all it wants in the entire world is to be near you, then take that feeling and multiply it x10.
All your kids want is your love, affection and attention. Giving it to them is not a burden, it is a wonderful blessing.
I am at a very special place in life right now. I have one boy who sees me as Superman and an older one who is rapidly becoming the man that my wife and I have helped mold him into.
I have very different relationships with them due to their different ages and personalities, but both are the absolute joy of my life.
God built YOU to raise children. Don't be afraid of it.
