Proud to be…

The word proud can stand for so many things.

Growing up I remember learning the verse – Pride comes before a fall.  (I think it’s from Proverbs.)  Screen Shot 2014-08-20 at 5.15.03 AMI always pictured it as a literal fall!!!!

But, there are other ways to be proud that I think are really great.Screen Shot 2014-08-20 at 5.16.58 AM

Sometimes we have accomplishments that we truly should be proud of – nothing wrong with having pride in ourselves!!!  We work hard and deserve to celebrate our success whether it is from a race, something at work, something to do with our family or anything else that we have really put our heart into.

The other way that we express pride is in others.

Chris and I try to tell our boys often how proud we are of them because I think everyone needs to hear that they are making others proud!!!

Yesterday when Chris opened his birthday cards, I read what the boys wrote to him and it was so sweet.

Both boys thanked Chris for everything he does.  Hunter said – “I’m proud to be your son!”  He has heard us say how proud we are to be his parents and now that he is older, the feeling is mutual!!!
