Thank you for the reminder.

My parenting philosophy is tattooed on me!  lol.gif

 

I have the word "grace" tattooed on my wrist.  To me grace means unconditional love, strength, support, always assuming the best and freedom to be.  I have it as a tattoo because I want to remember to give grace to myself and to everyone around me... including my children.
