Let them rock your world

Today some kid stories from three of my favorite blogs:

Maria's Musings: Inspired and inspiring

  • Inspiring paper by a 14-year-old telling how she felt Love's presence when she needed it. Posted by her mom.

Ad Infinitum: Pocket knives, motorcycles, and a prophetic T-shirt

  • Thrilling story of a high schooler who gets lost in the woods overnight, told from the mom's point of view.

Stone River Studio: "Let the river run…"

  • This author gets inspiration from her Facebook membership—I know how she feels.

Teenagers and college kids rock my world. The ones I'm friends with have such clear vision and strong ideals. They are honest, straightforward, savvy, loyal, affectionate. They see the world is a mess, but they don't complain about it—they do something about it.

Have you hugged a kid today? It may be prickly at first, but get past that first moment and hang on. You'll get a fierce embrace in return. Take them as your inspiration, and you'll see the future.

Your ideas and inspiration are welcome! Please comment below or Contact Laura.

Thanks for linking to Heidi's story! One of her favorite spots to dialog with other spiritual thinkers is www.tmcyouth.com. Heidi's newest gift of love is feeding and taking care of 5 horses on Sunday evenings for an Equine Assisted Therapy program. I've loved being allowed to tag along and Heidi's frequent reminders that moms can rock too!
