she knows no temperature, only adventure. while we stand and watch in amazement and melt.
been thinking about being a parent and judging things and how much more I judge than I think I do. we all do. but lately I've been remembering before parenthood and how much I judged parents and how sometimes now we can see others judging us. having to explain the way we do things and comparing ourselves to other parents ways of doing things. if I could go back and change something about my younger self, it would be that. who am I to even think those things? to not even try to understand their life or think if they would just do 'this'..
because everyone is different, every kid is different, every situation is different. you absolutely do not know what it is like to be in their place. to walk their steps. a situation might look terrible-or amazing-on the outside, but that's all we see. the thing we do share is that we have the same Father who is the ultimate judge and giver of life and grace and peace. And he calls us to love.
so be kind. extend grace. please don't judge such a vulnerable and precious thing we are all just trying to figure out. let's be a team.
