You’ve heard of Honest Abe.
Well, meet Honest Babe. At least that is my hope for Naomi–that she will be truthful, tenderhearted, and improve the world that she came into.
Of course I can say whatever I want. She’ll learn by watching what I do.
If pressed, most of us will say we’re relatively honest, but relative to what?
The world is full of corruption.
The common approach seems to be to shrug, say that’s the way it is, and game the system ‘like everyone else.’ As long as the lies are ‘little,’ no worries, right?
I’m no stranger to this thought process, but having a child has really opened my eyes to its dangers.
Naomi is already paying careful attention to everything I do, and that will only intensify.
I want to be able to look into her little eyes and say what’s right and what’s wrong, without blinking.
As always, would love to hear your comments!
