You are enough!

Thought for the week
“Focus more on who your child is than on what your child does. Remember, you’re growing a person, not fixing a problem.”
LR Knost
WOW! What a freeing quote. My child is a growing child, not a problem to be fixed! There may be things that she needs to learn, but she doesn’t need to be fixed.
With the Christmas Holiday quickly approaching, you might be starting to dread those long days spent with relatives:
Cousin Jo with her perfectly behaved children who are giving your slurping and burping preschooler side-eye at the dinner table.
Your sister-in-law, who is flawlessly dressed in name-brand clothes, with her perfect hair, flawless makeup, and impeccable nails, wants to know, “What DO you DO with all your free time?” now that you stay at home with the kids.
Your uncle, who rolls his eyes when your family is late for dinner.
Your mom, who seems to disregard every limit you have set for your kids, sneaks your child the 5th Christmas cookie BEFORE DINNER.
These moments can make us feel like we are just not enough. We feel like we are not good enough parents. We feel like we are not pretty enough. We have too many rules for our kids.
No. No! NO!
That is a lie born from insecurity and unrealistic self-expectations. As long as you act out of love for your kids, you are a hero to your kids. You make their world go around. You make a difference in their lives… Every. Single. Day.
You have been called to be a parent. You were not given instructions on how to be a parent; you have simply stepped up to the role. You are still learning too. You are growing as a parent just as your child is growing as a person. Keep it up! Your children are watching!
This is a Youtube video that Google made about heroes that reminded me of you! I hope you like it!

I wish you well!
