We must BE Good Humans, in order to Raise them

You don’t have to have a lot of money to be a good person and help others. In fact, from my experience it seems that genuinely good people help out somehow, even when they are in need.

My husband is a genuinely good guy. He has his faults, as we all do; but he’s always had a huge heart. It’s my favorite quality of his.

Every time it snows in our area, my husband makes sure that he shovels our next door neighbor’s house and the house next to theirs.

He doesn’t even ask, he just does it. He knows they are older and it’s difficult for them to shovel the heavy snow like he can. He doesn’t do it for recognition. He doesn’t do it for money. He just does it because he is a good human.

Roughly one month ago, he helped save a worker at Walgreen’s when a thief had physically harmed her. He held the man against the wall until the police came to take over. Again, he didn’t do it for recognition. He didn’t do it to be a hero or for money. He did it because it was the right thing to do in that moment.

My husband is a very low profile guy.

He works hard.

Loves his family.

Lives with conviction.

He is a protector by nature. It’s in his design.

We aren’t rich. We live on the edge of comfortable. But money doesn’t make you a good person. It’s the little things that count the most.

My husband is a good human. Our boys see how selfless he is; and I hope they follow in his footsteps.

If we want to raise good humans, we need to show them how to be one first.

Hey "Youse Guys!" I'm a mom of two handsome, smart, and lazy boys. I'm originally from South Philly, PA; but currently reside in Wilmington, DE. I enjoy drinking coffee, scrolling Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and living my best life in my yoga pants. Although I have a Master's Degree in education, I chose to stay home while my kids are little. Crafting is also my jam... thus, Pinterest being one of my main scrolling sites. Writing has always been a solid outlet for me. Need to yell at a boyfriend who broke your heart? Yell at him through the written WORD. Need to mourn a loved one? Get your feelings on a laptop and type away some of the grief. Need to laugh or cry about the ups and downs of motherhood? WRITE IT DOWN!
