That's what you call it!
My husband and I have always had this deep and abiding principle
down deep in our hearts
that we've tried to adhere to throughout our years
of child raising
We never could quite put words to it,
and sometimes we were VERY tempted
to stray . . .
Like when my daughter was graduating from high school
and all the OTHER friends were getting new cars
full rides to college . . .
Like when the boys wanted the lastest and greatest
new gaming systems . . .
Yesterday I learned a NEW principle
the principle of
and I can honestly say that over the years
it's a principle
"that has made all the difference"
there is much to be learned through
hard work and obedience
"doing it on their own"
overcoming difficulty at school,
financial problems . . .
It's a good thought
to remember . . .
at Christmas time . . .
