I Am The Best Mom!

05/11/2013

Oh yes! If in doubt, ask my kiddos!

My kiddos regularly say I am the best mom.
I know I am not but still I accept with deep thanks their love for me – it’s God’s gift.
I know it is the adult me and other adults who say I am not the best mom, or them not the best mom, or them not the best person.

But my kiddos know better. They appreciate who I am and not look for who I am not compared to others; they appreciate what I can do and not look for what I do imperfectly compared to others; they appreciate my love and not look for another mom.

The more they appreciate me regardless of the condition we are in, the more I feel their overflowing love. The more thankful and happier I am!

My kiddos always find me something that they know I will like -- for sure!

We adults have a lot to learn from the kids.

– No comparing. Appreciate the person who loves you.
– The best doesn’t mean perfect.
– No need to focus on imperfection, love instead.
– There can be a billion bests. It only needs people who are grateful enough.

Happy mother’s day to the best mom — YOU ARE THE BEST MOM!

If in doubt, be kiddolike.

“Do you hear what these children are saying?” they asked him. “Yes,” replied Jesus, “have you never read, “‘From the lips of children and infants you, Lord, have called forth your praise’?” – Matthew 21:16

      Hugggs to you Theresa. As mothers, there are tendencies for us to feel that what we have done for the kids are not enough especially if they don’t turn out as we expected. I myself didn’t evolve as per expectations but still recognize my mom as the best mom. She is the best mom!

      And I believe our kiddos will see that in us too 🙂
