Thoughts on Motherhood for the Coming Year

(that’s me… the mom)

I want my children to trust me… and I want to be worthy of that trust.

 I want them to know that they are loved… not just repeat it like a Sunday school answer because it’s what I want to hear… but have that love be deep within them and encircle them.

I want to let things go… I want to remember that they are trying to get it right.

I want to make them a priority… they really are more important to me than Facebook… so I better darn well put that in to practice.

I want them to love words… from fairy tales to bible stories to Little House on the Prairie and Charlotte’s Web.

I want them to be imaginative… to dream and make believe.

I want to be an example of holy and healthy
