We show up—
with hearts
filled with love
and words, full of care—
we dare greatly
to plant the seeds of
our virtues and values;
so our children
will rise and lead
with minds — set on growth
for a lifetime.

Emerging from soil,
reaching for light;
finding their source of Love—
so they might thrive.
We show up,
time after time,
encouraging them through
the inevitable stormy weather,
so they might survive.

Gracie and Daph with the Smiles.
And Joy giving me that eye that the pink doesn’t match.

We, heroes of today,
sieze this moment
to develop their perspective
to see every challenge, regardless of conditions, as opportunities;
to embrace every trial with grace and humility,
with persistence and determination;
We show up
in this instance—
because they will eventually
be called to continue our story;
to press on to their own
courageous course—
on to their own
heroic path.

To serve the next generation;
To slay their coming dragons;
To conquer their own demons
where’er they go.

So now,
we show up,
because we know, this is how we —
the Masters of our souls today,
grow — the heroes
of tomorrow.

Raising Heroes: To Win or Learn! (Heroic +1 #1,418)
We (that would be me and you and all of us!) are raising the next generation of HEROES through our example and instruction as parents and educators. 🙏
Are you willing to have the humility to recognize that you’ve gotta shine a flashlight on what’s working and what’s not working and then bring the hammer of discipline to move from Theory to Practice to Mastery so we can change the world together?

The credit belongs to the (wo)man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again... who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if (s/)he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.

~ Teddy Roosevelt
