You have seen in my previous posts about Angel SoftIdeal Balance of Softness and Strength talking about the Scrolls of Wisdom – The Lessons I Have Learned From Parenting, What Is The Ideal Balance Of Softness And Strength? and how Angel Soft Has Softness And Strength. Then I told you about a scary experience I had as a mom, “The Ideal Balance of Softness and Strength In An Emergency.” Since it is so close to Mother’s Day, I am going to continue the ideal balance of softness and strength theme by telling you about my valued experience of a mother.
As my oldest son has grown and in college, I have had many occasions to reflect on the experiences I value most. It is funny, but it isn’t the big, expensive vacations or the lavish gifts; but the little things. I love the fact that my children love each other so much. My oldest son is 15 years apart from my middle child. Watching him interact with the younger ones just warms my heart. Moments akin to the image above just tickle my warm fuzzy bone. We were at the Olive Garden and Jakobi wanted to sit next to his big brother. Then Billy let Jakobi torture him throughout the meal. He is a good kid. He was raised right. They are my boys and watching them share love is a valued experience.
The unsolicited affection that I get from my little ones is a treasured moment as well. They come up to me all of the time and tell me they love me for no reason or they run to me and give me a kiss. Billy, now 20, rarely ever hugs or kisses his mommy. The rare occasions that he does are extremely valued and will not be forgotten. I cling to those moments when the dear child forgets my birthday or is cranky cause I woke him up too early. AND when my silly boy comes up to me while I am working and says, “Hey mom! Put your head in this hole.” I do so with no questions asked. Of course, I try to take a selfie. who wouldn’t want to have this rare moment documented! Tell me…what moments do you value as a mom?
