Today I’d like to share a little saying that I wrote.
Well why didn’t you do it then? Saying something to make yourself sound good is very different than following through with an action. Early last school year, my mom told me about another preschool mom who she had been getting to know. She said that this mom had been asking about foster care, and asking my mom about how to get involved. I kind of laughed it off, thinking that it was just another person who “wanted” to become a foster parent, but never actually would. Here we are, almost a year later, and she and her husband have just finished the foster parent classes, and are nearing the end of their journey to becoming foster parents. I wouldn’t be surprised if they took in their first placement by 2015. I still cannot believe that these people actually followed through with becoming foster parents; they took action instead of sitting back and watching us live our lives. I’m very impressed.
I’m not saying that everyone should be a foster parent, but like many other avenues in life, I’m saying that you shouldn’t just claim you would do something unless you are willing to put some action behind your words and follow through with a thought.
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
