Relationship Reflection

Standard

The very nature of our beings long for relationships. In my own life, my relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ has been the greatest, most life-changing relationship. I say this because it is the foundation for all other relationships in my life. This relationship has and is teaching me love, selflessness, grace, humility, discernment; all characteristics I want to possess in relationships with people in my life.

My husband and family are the closest relationships to me. They provide unconditional love and support. I was blessed with an amazing childhood with parents who were fully invested in my growth and development. My mom was able to quit her job as a dental hygienist to become a stay-at-home mom when she gave birth to me, and later my sister. My parents raised my sister and me in a home that was full of love, support, encouragement, and opportunities. They encouraged us to be well-rounded, provided us with opportunities that many children never have, and most importantly, showed us love. My husband and I have been married for a year in December and I am incredibly blessed to have him in my life. He is my best friend and love of my life. These relationships continue to grow through consistent communication, honesty, trust, respect, and love.

These relationships and my part in them are so essential to my ability to be an effective early childhood educator because through Jesus Christ I have an eternal example of what love and true relationship look like. I am also blessed to have a husband and family that love and support me unconditionally. I hope I can show half as much love to the children, parents, grandparents, and guardians that has been shown to me.

    Hi Renee,
    What a wonder reflection you have shared and I know that you have and will continue to have a great relationship with the students and their families because you have the ultimate example and guidance as what a relationship is, how it looks and how it feels.
