Question Of The Day: What do you most want for your family's future?
Presented by Intel, Sponsors of Tomorrow.
My husband has two sisters. He is the middle child, bookended by females who have grown into fabulous women. In my life, I have never seen siblings who are so close. Their dedication to and love for one another is one of the things that made me admire my future spouse.
With our four children, we have encouraged a strong commitment to the family. Admitedly, this has become difficult as the oldest entered the teen years. I most want our family to have bonds that transcend time, space, and distance. As Christians, my husband and I dedicated our children to God. I pray that the faith they have been raised in will remain in their hearts; I pray that their faith will grow to become a vital part of who they are.
I want my children to lean on each other in their adult years, not just show up for holidays or occasions. I know that each of them will forge friendships that are familial and I support that, but I hope that our family will remain strong even after I am gone.
