Recently at my daughter's school they invited the mother's in for a "Muffins with Mom" event. I didn't know what to expect outside of eating muffins and fruit. It was a beautiful, French themed affair that each mother shared with their sons and daughters.
The teacher had each student share their favorite memories of their mom. I was touched by my daughter's words. They were few in number, but mighty in their power to convey her love and appreciation in good and bad times. I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to share her thoughts about our relationship.
There is a path. It can be smooth at times, or it can be rocky and rough. This path is called, life. It is very long and has many twists and turns. Through this path, I have a person by my side.
She makes the rough path smooth. I'm glad to have you there to push me and help me strive to be my best.
I love you mom!
It's a blessing to have your children offer admiration for your hard work. Parenting is never easy. Even in your best efforts, you will make mistakes. I gave just a glimpse at one of my parenting mishaps in my recent blog post, "I Failed As a Parent". I hope the words from my middle schooler, inspire and encourage. Have a fantastic weekend!
