I Love You Mommy

I Love You Mommy

 I love you Mommy!!!

Now every mother will agree these words make our day, any day and any hour of the day.

This short sentence is so loaded and powerful, so powerful it touches the very depth of the heart, diffuses every tension, and most certainly cheers us on.

We have read varying versions of how being a mother is a 24/7 duty call either as Nurse, Teacher, personal shopper, personal Stylist, driver and the countless other roles we get to play in the lives of our little ones and family. All without a paycheck. Well I beg to differ.

Most days for me as will be with most of you  can be overwhelming, so when I get a bearhug and a sincere ‘I love you mommy’ from any one of my children at any time of the day, that for me is a huge affirmation, a booster that energizes me to keep on.

I love my life as a mommy. I love every detail involved, yes even the discomforting, annoying ones. Can’t trade it for anything.

I love the fact that from a tiny foetus God bestows me such grace to carry and birth life, to nurture that life and watch it grow into nations.

Mommyhood is not a burden that quenches the dreams and aspirations of the mother, rather I see it as a platform to achieve more than one can imagine.

Love your life. Don’t be eager for those Precious little ones to grow up fast and leave home. Enjoy every moment you get to grow with them. Those moments are the ones that truly matter. Yes, every ‘I Love You Mommy’ is a treasure to cherish for life.

    We pray that these children would continue their “I love you mommy” even as they grow older.

      Honestly, that will depend largely on us. We must season that love with sincerity, love, patience and much more. It’s achievable.

      Amen. If the foundation is well formed there’s no reason why loving and expressing that love should stop even as adults.

    Those words from our children are like dew on a parched land, it’s very refreshing. It gladdens my heart and gives me joy, it tells me I must be doing something right. Children expressing their love is a function of us expressing our love for them not just by deeds but in words. The relationship we have with them expresses our relationship with God. We love because He first loved. Glory!!

      So true. Thank you so much for this insight, especially the ‘dew on a parched land’.
      And I am in total support of us expressing our love not only in deeds but also in words. This goes a long way in building self esteem in our children and much more.

    Priceless! I mostly certainly can identify with you on this. Mummyhood rocks.
