O Beautiful for Spacious Skies

Another beautiful picture by my talented little artist, Layla. Being a parent there is not guide book, no profession standards, no excel easy to read, ties to life formula. It is a jungle...survival of the fittest. Throw your hat in the ring jump on the mechanical bull, hope to God you don't fall off. And how do you know you are doing it right? you aren't graded, you don't get a raise or promotion or even employee of the month.You are never stroked or coddled. Is there an award in heaven...you get a magic cap and gown with a certificate signed by God....certified good parent? not hardly. Are you measured by your child's successes...or their talents..or good looks? If you are looking for an answer then I don't have it. I just hope I get that cap and heavenly gown one day. But in reality, it is when you can see your child truly happy.. Layla's moments of peace is when she is drawing. She is quiet...thoughtful but best of all you can see her creative wheels turning. As a parent that is better than all the awards or bonuses or prizes.
