Growing up my mom made sure we understood how important it was to be happy for others. In church I learned the importance of allowing my children to have their moments. From making sure they have their own special day to teaching them that they are a team. They should not be feeling envious of the other because they each have their own gifts from God. Momma would say today for me but tomorrow is for you.
I am grateful when I see my two oldest interact these days. There was a moment in there where I wondered if they were ever going to find their way back to being the best of friends. As I watched them grow I saw the word Proverbs 22:6 manifest this year "you train a child in the way that they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it." I give God the Glory that his word did not come back void. I am not raising my children in the ways of the world. Therefore, I don't expect them to do anything but support and love one another. No jealousy, definitely no shade and no negative seeds will prosper. Prayerful that they will stay on the same team and nurture and support one another because they are better together. They will definitely need each other in some capacity or another, therefore, I pray unity over my children and continued strength.
