great parenthood quote...

I just re-came-across this quote from Jeffrey R. Holland that I love...such a great reminder of the importance of our work as parents...

"Our children take their flight into the future with our thrust and with our aim. And even as we anxiously watch that arrow in flight and know all the evils that can deflect its course after it has left our hand, nevertheless we take courage in remembering that the most important mortal factor in determining that arrow’s destination will be the stability, strength, and unwavering certainty of the holder of the bow.”
