As kids, neither of us remember our parents fighting. We were both lucky enough to grow up in loving families, where our parents smiled a lot and held hands as they walked. If you have ever seen Leave It To Beaver - you get the idea!
Now, we aren’t saying that things never went wrong, we are just saying that our parents protected us from seeing the bad stuff.
Everyone has different parenting styles... and we aren’t here to judge yours. God knows we aren’t perfect! But, it is so important to remember that our kids are watching what we do and how we behave.
If they constantly see you and your spouse fighting, they may think that is what a marriage is supposed to be like. If they see you drunk all the time, they may think that acting like that is justified. If they hear you making fun of other people, they will go to school and do the same. You get the point!
None of us are perfect. We all make mistakes. Parenting is a continuous work in progress....but remember, you are their role model. You set their standards.
We have different situations. One of us has been married for 15 years. The other is going through a divorce. One of us struggled with a drinking problem. The other hardly drank. Even though our experiences are different, we both work very hard to be good role models for our kids.
Are you the person you want your kids to become? Is your relationship one worth modeling? We ask ourselves these questions often. You may want to too!
A little ENERGY UPDATE! These last few weeks have been challenging. Old patterns/ situations/ timelines, have been showing up that we THOUGHT we had finally cleared. 😔There have been A LOT of emotional highs and lows. One minute you’re high on life, the next minute you’re questioning your worth. These situations that are presenting themselves right now, are a chance to REALLY clear them once and for all, by reacting in a different way than you would have in the past. Now is NOT the time for self-sabotage and self doubt when these challenges show up. Now IS the time for holding strong and weathering this storm (Ironic how it’s been super stormy in SD recently, huh?! 😏) because after the storm, the rain that washed everything away, has also nourished the seeds that have been planted... and from THAT comes NEW LIFE! 🙌🌿🌈 Now is the time to persevere and keep going on the path toward the life you want. Keep doing the things that will get you there... even if it might FEEL like there is no point. There IS a point. Even if we can’t see the full picture now... the clouds will part and the sun will come through, illuminating it all. It will bring rainbows and new life, sprouting from the earth. Some days have felt like the end... and they have been. The end of our old life. BUT it’s only the BEGINNING of our new life that is just about to sprout! Hold strong my loves we are almost out of this storm! This rainbow on my drive home this morning, was the sign we all needed! Wishing you love and light today as we all power through. I’m here for anyone that might need some support. Please feel free to reach out! 🙏❤️ #energyupdate#energy#lightworker#newbeginnings#freshstart#dontgiveup#perserverance#weatherthestorm#rainbow#newlife#sprouts#lessons#oldpatterns#lifelessons

8 rules that George Washington Carver lived by:
1. Be clean both inside and out.
2. Neither look up to the rich nor down to the poor.
3. Lose, if need be, without squealing.
4. Win without bragging.
5. Always be considerate of women, children and older people.
6. Be too brave to lie.
7. Be too generous to cheat.
8. Take your share of the world and let others take theirs. #lifelessons
Stop That! when it happens it’s usually the low vibration energy of others or the one that can be inside of you ... ❤️

Even if the days are brighter or darker, it is never too much or bigger than God. Today's verse allowed me to see that no matter how deep my situation or problem is, I can ALWAYS rely on God to pull through them. & So can YOU! don't ever for a second think that you are alone, because you're not!!
