The language of our virtues
Wow. Totally blown away by this girl. She rattled off 8 or 9 virtues in the blink of an eye.
I did not mean for this post to rabbit trail on my qualities as "the best mom ever". I certainly have more blind-spots than I can count. But I love how the language of our virtues seeps into their everyday vocabulary.
My point is: Our children learn what they hear and see. I talk to them and (try to) model particular virtues in everyday life. They listen and practice and experiment with the virtues we present to them.
What are the virtues that are close to your heart and soul?
What virtues did you learn either directly or indirectly growing up?
