When you become a parent, you dream of what your child will be…an athlete, a businessperson, an actor, a doctor. You imagine happiness and success. Few people tell you that being a good parent is one of the most frustrating, exhausting, overwhelming, scary, joyous, thrilling, and moving experiences in your lifetime. It is also one of the most rewarding. You have never loved anyone in the same way as your child. You also have never flown by the seat of your pants so often.
“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. Please remember that your difficulties do not define you. They simply strengthen your ability to overcome.” ~ Maya Angelou
