Thought for the Day
Today I was reading through some of the quotes I had pinned on pinterest (yes, I love pinterest and am addicted to it). It is a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt. It really struck home with the situation we are in now. We are doing what we feel will be best for our family. We are being questioned, talked about, and prodded for why's and how come's. This is what it said, "Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway." How true is that? As a family, we have made a choice that we feel is best for our family - now and for the future. No amount of prodding, promising or questioning will change that. We are being criticized and I'm sure we will continue to be for quite some time but that decision will not change. We will protect our children and do all that we can to help them. That is our job as parents. I am a parent first, everything else follows. If there are feelings that we have hurt, that was not the intent. However, I will stand by my decision. I will not try to explain or justify why we chose what we chose. I will not ask for forgiveness nor will I apologize. We have done what we feel in our hearts is best.
