FAMILY SESSION: Pop of Color

There has been so, so much going on in our world lately...

People choosing comfort over integrity, popularity over truth, justification of wrongs in order to be on top, irrational choices, hate, meanness, arrogance and so much sadness...

It seems overwhelming and weighs on us all...

We have homes and children for whom we would lay down our lives...
we expect more of and more for them...

and yet, we are so small in the seemingly immeasurable about of "stuff" going on around us...

I saw a meme recently with two contrasting ideas...
A leader asking a group of people, "Who wants change?" and everyone raises their hands.
The same leader asks this same group of people, "Who is willing to change?" and everyone looks to the floor.

This is where the rubber meets the road...
where we might be the only ones who go against the current of society...

I watch these families that I meet at each of my sessions...

Dads who do what is right, who live by a set of rules of integrity even when they are exhausted...
Moms who find joy in the little things and who store those treasures in their hearts...
Parents who work as a team to not give their children the "easy" life, but to mold them and help them struggle through so that when they reach adulthood, it won't be a "smack in the face" but rather a confident challenge because they know they'd weathered things in the past and they are ready for whatever the future holds...

and the future is always unknown...

I'm so thankful for the hope that these families bestow on me...
that little ray of sunshine when I don't think I can face another news program on the TV

That Pop of Color when things around us look so grim...

This family emulates what I've spoken about in this post...and that little 'pop of yellow' is a perfect example of finding the smile and the hope in a day...
