I want my son to be different from so many boys and men I see around me. I want him to respect women (not think that they are inferior or objects to ogle at). I want him to work and study hard (not be a slacker who plays video games all day). I want him to be a leader (not a follower). I want him to love God and worship Him (not worship himself or other idols). I want him to grow up and be a man, a real man. And I'm not sure I know how to help him develop into that.
Thankfully I am not alone in raising this Little Man. I have an amazing husband who is so excited about being a father. He is ready to step up to the plate and teach our son to be make godly choices. He is ready to be an example and humbly show him the way he should go. And we have the Lord to help us. We can pray for wisdom and guidance, and He will answer us. We also have great parents who can give us advice along the way. And we have a church that will help us, godly men and women that will help teach Liam how to be a godly man as well.
So yeah, I'm a little nervous, but I also have assurance that everything will be okay. I'm not sure how this crazy ride is going to turn out, but I know I'm not alone and I know that Liam is more loved already than he could ever imagine.
My view when I look down, Liam is growing!
