Motherhood should come with…
…a sense of adventure! How many adventures could we have and how much better would our lives be if we faced each day as a new adventure?
…automatic scrapbooking that at the end of each day downloads the best parts of your day and preserves them on paper for you to look back to for help remembering all those special moments we inevitably forget to write down or capture with a camera.
…a forgiveness button, not so much for the children but for ourselves. If we are able to forgive our own shortcomings, and then learn from them, we’ll be better able to teach our children well, so that we’ll have fewer events that need to be forgiven.
…”I’m sorry” said more easily. We screw up, it’s unavoidable, but we also have to know when to, and be able to, say “I’m sorry.” Though we might want our kids to think we are perfect, they know and can see that we are not. Sometimes they point it out and we are caught. Being able to say “I’m sorry” teaches humility and grace, don’t we all need more humility and grace?
…shared joy in the small things. What better way to show encouragement than by letting the joy spill forth for even little things?
…thanks. Thanks for our children, for our partners, ourselves, our faith, everything!
It’s another Five Minute Friday of prompted, no-holds-barred, flat out, spilled passion into words. Jump in and join the fun with:
