I know we love our kids and get a lot of joy out of motherhood but have we really forgotten that everything we do in life is BECAUSE we love them? Why is it that we are so busy, so stressed out and so depressed that we no longer remember what's really important?
Every morning when I wake up I look at my son and think about how blessed I am to have him in my life. I am in awe at God's creation of this world, life, our children. God gave us his best. Don't our children deserve our best?
Our thoughts affect our moods, and the people around us. When we think negative thoughts we give out negative reactions. We make our kids feel what we regardless of the words we say to them. When we are proud of them, they feel that love emanating from our hearts. They learn by example not lectures. They learn by watching our every move.
So, ladies (and gents), let's make our kids feel the love that I know we all have for them! The next time someone asks you how your day is going I want you to look that person in the eye and say, "my life is AMAZING. I AM A MOM!"
- Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him. -Psalm 127:3
Edit: I am getting a lot of responses that sound like people are assuming I am not thinking about the mothers and their level of stress or the reasoning behind it. I want to point out that my post never said I think mothers have no reason to be stressed or that I think they don't love their children. I know stress just as much as anyone.
All I am trying to emphasize is that just because you are having a bad day does not mean you have a bad life. When we act like we are mad children think they did something wrong when they are just being children. I just want people to recognize that the situation they are in is not their whole life. It will pass.
When I am having a bad day that is all it is. I still have a good life.
