I watched as the the young mothers cuddled their children on Mothers Day, it hit me - how precious and meaningful is time and how valuable relationships are and what we put into them.
Time clicks by and we have but a blink of time to instill in these little ones, and really in all those around us, things that will influence and impact their life in a positive way.
As a baby, there is NO control over anything - zilch. Hungry? Hopefully someone notices and feeds you! Had to go.....or ooops just went in my diaper - ummm hopefully someone smells it and will do something about it. Crying and just need a hug? Hopefully someone picks you up and smothers you in sweet kisses, as they sing and rock you to sleep.
Everyone needs that kind of acceptance and love - someone to care - invest time in - believe in. Momma's are miracle makers that keep the world together. Oh they can be a force to be reckoned with at times - but oh how they love, unconditionally.
WOMEN - you are amazing. Whether you are a maternal mother or not, have a good relationship with your Mom or not, I bet you have influenced or will have the chance to influence another's life in a positive way.
Love on people any chance you get. Give a kind word - it could make a life long impact. Give motherly love to people whether you or they are young or old - it doesn't matter.
TIP: your kids are influenced by YOU.
- They hear you. What do you speak? Words of life or death.
- They watch you. What do your actions tell?
- They learn love from you. How do you treat other?
- They learn right or wrong. What does your life reflect?
- Do your best and let your life be a positive role model. We all make mistakes - ask for forgiveness if you need to.
- Prayer - pray over your children | family | others often - it shows them how to pray as well as that prayer is powerful and works.
I can tell you that I sure made my fair share of mistakes, but through the grace of God, my kiddos made it to adult hood and I am so proud of who they have become and still are becoming.
One full of love and compassion, respectful, and a hard worker. Polite and patient. Talented.
One full of life dreams with no boundaries on the vision of lives that can be touched with a true minsters heart.
Remember: Parenthood is ever evolving. Life is about Family. It's about Relationships and what we invest in others that truly make a difference.
