• The Fathership A different and more serious — or shall I say necessary — spin on this week’s MOVIE QUOTE MONDAY. This is an outtake, if you will, from our Gladiator video a few weeks back. 
Harper asked an innocent yet insightful question as to why Juba says “I’ll see you soon...but not yet...” Watch what followed... It’s imperative to talk to our kids about death and loss...no, not to the point where they’re scared. We do it so they’ll feel comfortable with their own feelings of loss, and ultimately so they know, unequivocally, that we will provide them with a metaphorical blanket of unwavering safety and security when wanting to express such emotions. 
I lead an honest home, and it’s that honesty that weaves the fabric of integrity. And you can’t spell integrity without GRIT. Remember that.

@brandonjbarash Omg she is so so cute, 💕 and so true to talk to your kids. I remember when my Anthony was in kindergarten A friend of mine‘s dad had passed away and I was explaining to him where I was going and why,, it was around Easter time so in the Catholic school they were learning about Jesus rising again, and he looked at me with such innocence in his eyes and said I don’t know why you’re so sad mom he’s just gonna rise again in three days. I laughed and I cried and I had to explain that, that does not happen to everybody because everybody is not like Jesus. The innocence of the mind it’s amazing.

I love this so much. Coming upon 5 years of losing my dad this month. Will have to start drawing heart balloons and listening to Harper’s childhood wisdom. ❤️ Nothing like a father/daughter relationship. It’s so sweet to watch you two and how much you love each other.

This is truly beautiful @thefathership @brandonjbarash - you are a wonderful father. And the innocence yet maturity of Harper is so heartwarming. As someone who can relate to you, having lost my father as well, I can’t express how this post made me smile & teary eyed in its beauty ❤️ xo
