Parenting Dross

Here’s a parenting truth I recently discovered: Sometimes it is easier to focus on the dross that is coming out rather than the gold that is being refined. It is just that the dross seems to be so abundant. It’s ugly, useless  and it’s everywhere.  But the whole point of the refinement process is to make the gold pure.  The gold is now beautiful and very valuable even if it is not abundant as the dross. I’m going to consciously focus on gold coming out of the fire rather than the dross coming out of the refining process.
