I had to tell you what happened to me last night, because it just made me realize how everything that we say, or don’t say, to our kids makes a difference.
Last night, Ethan (our youngest son) had Parkour Practice (think “American Ninja Warrior”) and I took him to it alone. Mickey was home with the other kids, helping with homework (math is not my forte), so it gave E and I some time for just the two of us.
“Mom? Do you think God said ‘I have the perfect boy for Becky. They will love each other a lot. She will always be happy when she looks at him.’”
So I guess that I wanted to write to you to tell you this today, because it reminded me that what matters isn’t that you did XY&Z today. What matters is that you loved your family today.
Maybe you show your love by playing with your kids. Maybe you show it by taking care of the house. Maybe you show it by being silly with them or by being nurturing to them. However, you show your love to them, know that they can feel it, see it or hear it. Know that they don’t care if you mess up from time to time, because you are human, too. They are learning that love conquers all and they learn it by the way that you look at them, talk to them and enjoy being with them.
We are all learning together and sometimes our kids just know better than us. I guess we can learn a thing or two from our kids. 😉
