Do you know what our kids want the most from the adults in their lives? They want them to show up.
Girls want mothers and sisters and aunties and friends who faithfully love them through the hardest moments. Boys want fathers and brothers and uncles and friends who show up. Faithfully.
So teach them to show up, too. Teach them that when you make a commitment to something, whether it's a baseball team or a Sunday School class, you show up, come hail or high water.
No need to be the best or the brightest, no need to wow them with your skills or plan every Pinterest project you've pinned. Just show up.
Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart. -Proverbs 3:3
