I mopped.

Minutes later I found this in the kitchen floor....

Their feet leave prints in the kitchen and stains in the carpet.  

The little stain makers can be so frustrating at times.

But, their little muddy footprints are a reminder that they are walking in the shadow of ours.

I feel a gigantic responsibility as a parent.

It's the most important job in the world.

Our children tend to follow in our footsteps.  If we show love, children show love.  If parents attend church, the children do.  If parents have a lasting marriage, then children have a model to follow.  If the parents lead a healthy lifestyle, then the children tend to follow suit.

My wish for my boys is that I leave footprints worth following.
