Small acts lead to great victory

The sacrifices we make today equal peace and happiness in the future. For parents this means: resisting the impulse to anger and instead patiently working out a conflict with our disobedient child, putting down the phone and cuddling with our toddler, encouraging our sensitive child to face a fear – these small acts will lead to a brighter relationship and stronger child. Similarly small, yet conscious acts of parenting, done day after day, will lead to a life of victories for us and our children.

“The smallest good act today is the capture of a strategic point from which, a few months later, you may be able to go on to victories you never dreamed of.”

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity (quote posted by JBP)
