Still Celebrating Moms

Wow! May has flown by in a blink. I still have some more celebrating of moms that I would like to do before the month comes to a close. I recently came across a book mark that I have had since Samantha was very young. It contains a poem (and you all know how I love those) that just reminded me of the important things about being a mom.

If I had My Child to Raise Over Again

If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.

I'd finger-paint more, and point the finger less.

I would do less correcting and more connecting.

I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.

I'd stop playing serious and seriously play.

I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.

I'd do more hugging and less tugging.

I'd see the oak tree in the acorn more often.

I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.

I'd model less about the love of power, And more about the power of LOVE.

by Diane Loomans

Enjoy each day that God gives you with your children.
