Some days I question myself as a parent-
✔Do I teach our kids enough?
✔Did I show a great deal of patience?
✔Was I strict enough/too strict
✔Did I allow enough play/lenience?
✔Did my tribe enjoy themselves?
✔Did I make them laugh?
✔Were our kids respectful?
✔Are they grateful & thankful? ✔Did they eat and drink enough and was it nourishing? ✔Were they kind to one another and others?
This is a list that can potentially go on and on... BUT today my smile lit up and my heart was full of joy when a COMPLETE stranger walked up to us at lunch and said “Excuse me, I want to tell you that you have VERY well-behaved children & you are a great mom. Well done & keep it up.” Sigh, what beautiful words to hear.... thank you to the nice gentleman for taking the time to complement our family! I’m looking forward to telling Brian when he comes home 🏡
