Black History Month

In honour of Black History Month I wanted to share a quote from Rosa Parks that I think we all can live by.

"Each person must live their life as a model for others"

Are you living your life as a model for others?

I hope that I am.  

I have 3 beautiful children that need me to guide them and show them the way.  My children need me to show them compassion and patience.  My children need me to show acceptance.  My children need me to teach them that the color of their skin does not define who they are.  We have lot's of colors in our family but we're one family.

I want them to love.  To show love.  I want them to be kind and gentle.  I want them to show acceptance and to be accepted.

I hope that I was their model.

I hope that I was a good role model.

I hope that I am a good role model.

  1. I've never heard that quote before but I like it. We could all benefit from being better role models. That way our kids are looking to us and not celebs to personify.

    Great post! Welcome to SITS!
