Parenthood is the ultimate symbol of paying it forward.
Parents give of themselves, and if not enough, they give themselves, for the development of their children.
They understand their role as hands that continue shaping into a time and space they might not even exist.
They do this with knowledge that their children will leave – sooner or later, to start their own journeys of sacrifice.
Sacrifice is easier when you have a worthy example to look up to.
We become our parents to our children. It takes deliberate effort to choose the kind of parents your children will be, by the example you are providing.
