Looking back on this now 6 year old mother’s day gift that still adorns my desk at work, I remember laughing at Ava’s top five reasons she loves me:
1 – You love me
2 – You let me eat breakfast
3 – You say prayers with me
4 – You let me help with dinner
5 – You help me plant flowers
All I thought back then was “well I HAVE to feed you!” Lol! It didn’t hit me until recently when I read Joanna Gaines’ blog where her kids rang the same sentiments about being well fed that I too see that my children NOTICE & FEEL provided for when I feed them. That is priceless! Daily I get the question “what’s for dinner” and in the past it annoyed me, I had that same thought, like, ugh, “I HAVE to feed you,” quit asking me that! But I have since learned a very important lesson, me feeding my family shows them my love tangibly. It shows them security. And from here on out I will view that duty in a whole different light!
Here’s to all the moms on today ~ keep providing!! 😉
