Lessons For Mom

All mothers are teachers, but we also learn
from our children. Here are a few things I have learned over the years that I
know to be true.

I’ve learned that
babies are miracles sent straight from heaven to earth by God.

I’ve learned that you
can’t live your dreams through your children. A mother’s job is to
help her children find their own dream and then urge them to go
for it.

I’ve learned the twos
aren’t really so terrible and that a child’s first day at school
is usually harder on the mom than it is on the child.

I’ve learned that when
I don’t know what to say, it’s better to say nothing at all than
to say words I’ll regret. There are times when a mother needs to
open her arms and shut her mouth.

I’ve learned that when
I feel like I have the weight of the world pressing down on my
shoulders it’s because I have forgotten that I’m not in charge of
the universe…God is.

I’ve learned not to cry
over spilled milk, spilled Kool-Aid, or spilled anything else. My
theory on housework is the same one Erma Bombeck adopted: "…if
the item doesn’t multiply, smell, catch on fire, or block the
refrigerator door, let it be. No one cares. Why should you?"

I’ve learned that if
you go to enough Little League games you will eventually see every
example of poor behavior ever invented, and it won’t be the kids
misbehaving.

I’ve learned that I can
handle disappointment or injustice much better when it happens to
me than when it happens to my children.

I’ve learned that faith
is essential to good parenting.

I’ve learned that as
painful as it is, sometimes we have to let our children fail in
order for them to learn how to succeed.

I’ve learned that no
matter how far away from home your children go, or how grown up
they become, no love is quite like a mother’s love, and even when
she is no longer around to guide you her words can live forever in
your heart.
