Brought to you by the Letter S


S is for Sacrifice.

sacrifice


noun sac·ri·fice \ˈsa-krə-ˌfīs, also -fəs or -ˌfīz\
: the act of giving up something that you want to keep especially in order to get or do something else or to help someone

A parent sacrifices so much for his/her child/ren.  What have you sacrificed?
Having more stuff?
A bigger house?
Better car?
Gourmet meals?
Your figure?
Time?
Comfort?
Money?

The list probably goes on and on.  But what you realize is that you would sacrifice anything for your child.  So these things don't seem like sacrifices at all...

Especially when I remember that Jesus made the biggest sacrifice, his life, in order to redeem us of our sins.  I am humbled.

Sacrifice .... i choose to be a mother... and thankfully, how hard it was, i was blessed with two .. everything i did (or did not do) for them was an act of love.... never a sacrifice.

Melody, I see a sacrifice as CHOOSING to give something up in favor of something else, and I chose to give up much because I love my children. That is sacrifice by my definition. It's not a bad thing. It's a loving choice.
