What are some of the things that go unnoticed in your family? Do you say anything or do you let it build up and come out later?
It focused on the topic of "Do I matter?"
It made me think about how I acted today. How I spoke to my children and to my husband. Am I pleased with my behavior today? This is my new guide. I will try and take a breath and remind myself that it all does matter. Every word, the tone of my voice, every gesture etc. Sometimes I do and say things that make me not proud. There are times when I get frustrated with something the kids do or say. Sometimes it is hard to be in control and not lose my temper. I know I am only human but I also know I can do better.
This book touched my heart in so many ways. There are aspects of my life that I need to improve. It's human nature to want to better yourself. This book is so encouraging and helps to reaffirm to me that it all does matter. Even though we may not be here to see the finished product, our work will leave a lasting mark on the world.
I don't know if my children will ever truly appreciate everything my husband and I do for them on a dialy basis. My hope is that they do and someday they do the same when they are Mamas themselves. For now, I will continue to strive to be the best Mama and wife I can. I will remember that there is something bigger than myself that makes all the "really difficult times" truly worth it.
