My Son’s Mother is amazing.
Just before our son was born in 2000, a colleague gave me the best piece of advice for raising children, and he said it was told to him by a very old and very wise woman.
“You only need to remember two things when it comes to raising children. You can’t hold them too much and you can’t love them too much.”
A few years later, I shared this story with a group and afterwards one man approached me and said, “There’s a third thing. Love their Mother.“
How much do your parents love you?
How much do you love your parents?
Our parent’s love for us is immeasurable, even if it doesn’t seem so. Maybe they just aren’t great at expressing it.
Anyone who has ever been a caregiver to a child should understand this amazing bond.
Happy Mother’s Day!
Mother Theresa said, “If you can’t do great things, do small things with great love”.
I hope some day to do not be so busy, and that I can plan a special Mother’s Day that makes my wife, Mom, Step Mom, and Mother-in-law all feel like the deserving Goddesses they are.
Well, if all I can give sometimes is my thoughts and prayers, and maybe a note, some flowers – than maybe I did do some small things with great love.
Carpe diem, jeff 🙂
