Becky at The Butler's Wife tagged everyone to play this game! I have loved reading everyone's responses - they have been so touching and beautiful. So here is my list:
Don’t try to live their lives vicariously through their children
Don’t try to be their child’s best friend. They know their kids will have LOTS of friends, but they will only have ONE mama.
Provide a home that is a haven from the world outside, a place to feel safe and loved and warm and special.
Are their children’s biggest source of encouragement
Hold their kiddo’s accountable for when they do wrong
Enjoy being in their children’s presence
Don’t say, “Wait till your dad gets home”
Hold back from protecting their children from everything – they know that some things are only learned the hard way.
Love and respect their husbands in front of their children
Talk with God A LOT
Know when to let go and trust that God will bless the job you have done
Thank God always for the wonderful, beautiful, incredible, breath-taking privilege of being a MAMA!
So now, if you are a mama, I am tagging, YOU!
