Few Words Wednesday: It Will Have Been Worth It

I originally pulled this quote to share with Will as he attempts to become the best athlete he can be. But when I typed it out here and reread it from the perspective of a mom who is about to celebrate her oldest child's birthday, I realized that with just a slight spin this poem could also honor the journey we call parenting.

So today, I share these words both in honor of my sweet boy who turns 12 tomorrow and the 12 years Tom and I have parented children:

It will hurt.
It will take time.
It will require dedication.
It will require willpower.
You will need to make healthy decisions.
It requires sacrifice.
You will need to push your body to its max.
There will be temptation.
But I promise you this...
When you reach your goal,
It will have been
Worth It.
