Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters. – Albert Einstein

A hero is a man who is afraid to run away. English proverb

No heroine can create a hero through love of one, but she can give birth to one. – Jean Paul Richter

You don’t raise heroes, you raise sons. And if you treat them like sons, they’ll turn out to be heroes, even if it’s just in your own eyes. – Walter M. Schirra, Sr.

Never choose to reproduce any man who will simply take care of children. Choose one who will parent . . .  best to choose one who has been parented. – Auntie Vanessa

to provide financial support = to provide financial support

to provide food, clothing, and shelter = to provide food, clothing, and shelter

to provide financial support OR to provide food, clothing, and shelter = (apparently) to take care of

to pay child support solely OR to provide food, clothing, and shelter solely ≠ parenting

to care = love, nurturing, emotional support, physical presence, quality time, shared memories

to raise (or to rear) = to lead by example; to impart knowledge, wisdom; to instill morals, sound values; to discipline in effort to move to a higher position; to lift up; to elevate

to provide financial support, to provide food, clothing and shelter, to care, and to raise = parenting

Age is a given. Maturity is not.

Barring death, a child will grow into adulthood. That is the nature of this planet.

A child, however, will not grow into a high quality man or woman without care and rearing.

Grace a stranger with your smile?

Show tangible kindness or generosity?

Uplift another’s accomplishment?

Share beneficial information?

Create something beautiful  . . . or useful  . . . or both?

Demonstrate solid morals and strong values?

Present only your best self?

Pretty is as pretty does.

Cool days, cooler evenings
Time for sweaters.
Chop the wood, stack it high
Get out the leathers.

Trees of yellow, orange and red
Mums in full bloom
Roses bending, lilacs sad
Skies of gloom

Chili on the stove, stew at a simmer
Aromas fill the room
Apple pie, hot cocoa sweet
Just a good time before…
Winter’s gloom

by Melody Wallace


Keep it pretty 🙂
