One day as I was chatting with a homeschooling mama whom I’ll call Dee, we did what we mamas love to do—talked about our children. One time, when some of Dee’s adult children were at home for a visit, they gathered to watch a video of when they were youngsters. As they laughed and enjoyed, one exclaimed, “We had the best childhood!”
I pray that you hear those same words someday. Here is an acrostic with some ideas that can help.
Believe God loves your children even more than you do.
Exude joy and wonder.
Savor childhood; don’t rush it.
Teach your children to be grateful by being grateful and expressing it.
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Invite other people into your heart and home and show by example how to relate to them.
Love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.
Dream of what can be and work to make it happen.
Hear what your children say.
Open your heart and arms to your children every day.
Obey God and teach your children to do the same.
Decide to be positive.
Finally, brethren, rejoice, be made complete,
be comforted, be like-minded, live in peace;
and the God of love and peace will be with you.
2 Corinthians 13:11
