You Are Loved
I was reminded today about how important it is to make sure our children feel loved. It seems simple, we think "of course they know we love them." But it's just as important, if not more, to say it. It's so simple to get caught up in our everyday lives. There are schedules to keep, activities to attend, school work to plan, teach, complete, and check, housework to be done, messes to clean up, and misbehavior to be dealt with. Here is the thing: we need to make sure our kids know they are loved everyday. So today I am going to make special effort to say "I love spending time with you," "I am proud to be your mom," and "I love you so much." Have you hugged your kids today?
