R is for responsibilities
Almost through with the A to Z of Me challenge. R is for responsibilities.
I take my responsibilities seriously. I always have, from early childhood. I remember being left in charge of my class whenever the teacher needed to leave the room. She would ask me to read to my classmates, knowing that I read well. I was about six at the time.
I see my main responsibilities as being the best wife and the best mother I can be. These are roles that only I can fulfil. I am the only wife my husband has and the only mother my daughter has. It is important that I take responsibility for those roles seriously.
I am responsible for my own growth. If I don't take responsibility for it, no-one else will.
I am responsible for my gifts and skills, to use them to build others up and encourage them.
So yes, I take responsibility seriously.
But hopefully I don't take myself too seriously.
