Fantastic Friday-because when our children learn the lessons we teach and put them in practice, it is fantastic.
Yesterday my youngest twin daughter made me so very proud. She was out trying to accomplish a task assigned by someone in a teaching position. It was very hard and after a few tries she had not succeeded. then she stopped and said the following to the teacher, "Ok, Davis women never quit. I can do this, bring it on." My baby then proceeded to continue trying to accomplish the task and she succeeded! The teacher was amazed at how my baby acted. I was not amazed. I expected her reaction.
I have always taught my children that they could do anything they set their minds to do. I tell my girls, "You are Davis women, you can do anything, Davis women don't quit." I tell my son, "You are a Davis man like your father, you can do whatever you want. You are smart and strong." These are different versions of the same pep talk. Many times I have seen my children copy my words, phrases and actions. I always have 4 sets of eyes following my eyes and 4 sets of ears listening to my words. My children are motivators, they encourage me to be a better woman. Today is fantastic Friday because my little one, has learned that she can do what she sets her mind to and that her determination and hard work will bring her success.
