I remember when #1 was about four, I was very upset about an argument with my best friend. She came in to the kitchen and said, “Mommy, you look like you need a hug.” That girl’s heart has never stopped growing.
#2 has a heart bigger than most adults. He always wants to cuddle and hug everyone.
#3 knows how to cuddle and love. He just has so much energy that he doesn’t sit still much.
The best part of being a parent is feeling their unconditional love returned. Another great thing about being a parent is seeing the things you have taught your child come out in them.
In difficult times, we all should look at what we do have. This is what matters. My children and my husband. Without them, I would not be me. All the stress that has been rampant in my life lately has definitely taken a toll on my perspective, but taking a blessings inventory has helped some.
