Today during my web trollings for good and inspirational things, I stumbled across this quote on The Daily Love. It echoed many of the thoughts and relationship that I have and hope to continue to have about and with my children and those that I feel the Lord has for me, but it distinctly reminds me of the difference between a parent, a creator and leadership coach.
"Child of mine, I will never do for you that which I know you can do for yourself. I will never rob you of an opportunity to show yourself your ability and talent. I will see you at all times as the capable, effective, powerful creator that you've come forth to be. And I will stand back as your most avid cheerleading section. But I will not do for you that which you have intended to do for yourself. Anything you need from me, ask. I'm always here to compliment or assist. I am here to encourage your growth, not to justify my experience through you."
