During our vacation in December we went to an ex-miner’s house. It was filled with lots of different coloured crystals that he brought back home during his years as a miner.
The whole patio and garden were filled with his crystals. There were easily a few hundred pieces on his compound.
Like these unpolished crystals the 3 kids arrived in this world as unpolished stones. It is up to us as parents to shape and polish them so that they become sparkling crystals which are of value. Through educating them and giving them the correct “polish” they become shinning and a valuable asset for society. With the experience that they gain from childhood and from us parents teaching them ,layers of shine are added onto them making them glow from within.
Like a baker shaping the dough into various different types of bread. We too help shape the lives of our kids.
Whether they turn out to be priceless jewels or semi-precious stones have yet to be seen. Only time will tell how they turn out to be.
