All couples who marry or strive to raise children naturally hope that love will hold their family together for the rest of their days. But, for various reasons, this simply isn't always the case
Whether you have children or not, break-ups are one of the most harrowing experiences to go through. It's often easy to fall into deep anger or guilt, despite that these feelings rarely help anyone.
Things can get even more difficult when children are involved. We can probably all agree that no child deserves to be in the middle of any adult quarrel.
Mother Brittney Johnson has quite the powerful perspective on this, and she decided to share it on Facebook in early July.
Her Facebook post has since been spreading like wildfire, and we coompletely understand why. We can all learn something from this wise mom, don't you think?
I prayed one night for the type of woman my daughter's father would be with, knowing that she would be raised in two homes.
Kayla has been a gift of so much more than I could have hoped for. She started nursing school and Payton has been infatuated ever since. So Kayla ordered a pair of mini scrubs for her to match.
Let me tell you, I'm raising a strong girl, a smart girl and a sweet girl. And I want nothing more than for her to be surrounded with role models who are exactly that. Thank you Kayla for showing Payton how to chase her dreams, how to work hard and stay up late to study for a test. Thank you for still making time to ride her bike with her and make her mac and cheese even in one of the stressful times of your life. You're a true role model and an amazing bonus mom and we are so proud of you!
If you're co-parenting, and seeing your child doing things like this doesn't bring a smile to your face, reconsider what's truly best for your child. Payton has more people to love her this way, and what more could a mother ever want for her child? Being best friends with me AND being best friends with Kayla, is exactly where P deserves to be.
It takes a village, and I happen to love mine."
Children do not do as we say, they do as we do. Please consider sharing Brittney's words to inspire more people to show love and consideration!
