Parenthood as privilege.

I always thought I would be a good parent. The truth is I will never know and that is a big empty hole for me. If you have kids I know it can be difficult, painful and even heart breaking but you are lucky that someone chose you to be their parent. Accept them, encourage them and love them unconditionally like my dad did with me. Even when I have doubted my value on the earth I knew he was proud because he told me. I knew that someone loved me because he told me that too. Don’t assume that your kids know, tell them, tell them constantly and often.

Thanks dad.
