A good parent loves their child.
That doesn’t mean they enjoy waking up to comfort their crying baby in the wee hours of the morning.
That doesn’t mean they enjoy wondering where their teenage kid is when he’s an hour past his curfew.
That doesn’t mean they always feel comfortable when their son or daughter makes unorthodox decisions and seemingly poor choices.
That doesn’t mean they find it pleasant when their child whines and pouts about not getting their way.
That doesn’t mean they’re going to have a good time when, not if, they have to watch their child suffer.
All aspects of parenting are not easy and fun.
Nevertheless, a good parent loves their child.
And it’s the power of love, not the ability to find an easy way, that sees them through.
Dreams are the offspring of one’s soul.
And like all offspring, there are aspects of nurturing, cultivating, and supporting one’s dreams that simply aren’t easy or fun.
And as it is with a parent, it’s the power of love, not the ability to find an easy way, that sees dreamers through.
