Lenten Affirmation, day 4

Tonight, I strongly affirm the version of me that emerges when I am around my children. He is my most authentic self. He is void of ego, yet confident. He is silly and stern. He is student and teacher. He gets angry yet forgives quickly. I want to be who I am with my kids all of the time.

Today I am grateful for the gift of being Thomas and Sophia’s daddy. I am grateful for a safe drive through awful weather. I am grateful for friends who love me through antagonism and others who offer me perspective when I would rather have a pity party. I am grateful for cuddles and hugs. I am grateful for an excellent co-parent.
