Leading The Way
Wednesday, April 20, 2011
As a woman, and mother, I try daily to set standards for my two daughters. They are both teens, and are at that age where they just don't want to follow, but only lead. Well , this week, they have both come to me and shared how they felt about my weight loss. They were sad. Why?? Because, "mommy", didn't make them do the same thing!!!
You see, my little ladies are also plus size. Of course in my eyes, they are the most beautiful people in the world. However, I had to question myself, and ask if I had truly been a good leader to them. Should I have done more, led better, or just plain ordered them to do as I do?? For a moment I was soooooo, sad.
How could I not have saw the writing on the wall, was I too full of myself to notice their unhappiness? What type of leader am I?
Well, you know what I finally did? I had a little talk with Jesus, and he said, "Each day is ANEW!! Be a leader NOW!! And you know what, I trust on his word, and not my own... (thank goodness).
So, tomorrow, these sparkpage visits will not just be about me, but for my team. I am now a true team leader!!! So, anyone out there reading this blog, if you have ideas that inspires a teen to want to work it out, recipes that are fun and easy to prepare, then please feel free to stop by my page and share.
Thanks for listening!!!
