Cement Mixer?

On occasion I quietly look
at my boys and imagine
what kind of men they will become.
My onetruelove and I are
raising two boys to become men.
I was reminded today of what
a father of four said at
a parenting seminar held at
our church a month or so ago,
“Children are wet cement and we want them to harden in the right way.”

All of a sudden
I cannot stop looking at my
two and a half year old boy
and my
four month old baby boy
and envisioning them as wet cement
hardening over the next 18 years
into grown men.

Wet cement hardens.
Like it or not
So best to harden the right way.

Does that make me a cement mixer?
