All because two people fell in love.
“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside of your body.” THIS is the quote I have always connected to, being a mother. To be that exhausted and that happy at the sometime..
“A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bank accounts smaller, homes happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten and the future worth living for.” All is true. For some, motherhood is the only place you can experience heaven and hell at the same time. Every time a child is born, so is a mother, a father, a grandmother, an aunt..
Life doesn’t come with a manual. This day, today, won’t come again.
This day, this gift, the present, this moment won’t come again, for tomorrow we will be a little older, hopefully more patient and wiser. WE need that, for ourselves and others. We are needed. We are here for each other as helpers, teachers of compassion, love, self and each other. This day is a gift. Always is. Life is 10% what happens to you , and 90% of how you react. People who say they sleep like babies usually don’t have them. Make it a habit to kiss your child, everyday and night. Even if they are already asleep. Especially when they are already asleep. There might come a time they won’t let you anymore.
No parent can child-proof and world. A parents job is to world-proof the child.
They communicate. Listen.
When you get shit on, cleanup and get back in there! Get back in Life and try that shit again.
