There is Hope for this World

I read a blog post today that both made me stop and think and gave me hope. When you click on it you'll think I've linked you to a giveaway, but forget about the giveaway. Read what this young mom is doing to teach her son to grow up to be a "good man". http://loosethreadstitchers.blogspot.com/2009/05/win-stitchable-journal.html You can't put in for her giveaway unless you're a member of her stitching group, but read the post anyway. What she's actually giving away in her blog post is priceless... She writes about teaching her 5 year old son "What a woman should expect from a man and why it is important to be a gentleman". And kudo's to the Dad of this little boy who assisted the Mom in her plan. In a time when children are often considered more of a pain than a gift, who have to be hauled to daycare and back, who dare to be sick on a work day, and who misbehave in public simply to get some attention, this article comes as a breath of fresh air. I have never read this blog before, but I wish this lady a most wonderful Mother's Day. She deserves it.
