I found a collection of words of wisdom for us moms. I thought I would share them with you.
We all need strength and guidance and when we work together to encourage each other we are a powerful force.
Motherhood is a hard job and most of the time a very thankless one, but it is the most important work we can do in this life.
I love reading quotes about parenting and love finding new inspiring words to help me make it a little bit farther that day.
I try each day to be a better mother then I was the day before and I love being able to find strength in the uplifting words of others.
I love being a mother!!!!
My kids make me a better person each and every day.
Marjorie Hinckley once said about parenting–“whenever possible say yes, they are only kids once!”
“As you create a home, don’t get distracted with a lot of things that have no meaning for you or your family. Don’t dwell on your failures, but think of your successes. Have joy in your home. Have joy in your children. Have joy in your husband. Be grateful for the journey.” ― Marjorie Pay Hinckley
IF I HAD MY CHILD TO RAISE OVER AGAIN
If I had my child to raise all over again,
I’d build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I’d finger paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I’d take more hikes and fly more kites.
I’d stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I’d do more hugging and less tugging.
I’d see the oak tree in the acorn more often.
I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.
I’d middle less, about the love if power,
And more about the power of love.
By Diane Loomans
I think its so important to remember what really matters, its so easy to let the difficulties and distractions of life become our main focus, instead of focusing on what really matters.
I love this with my whole soul.
Motherhood is what God gave us time for.
Our voice becomes our children inner voice.
When I get upset at my son for yelling at his siblings I have to reassess how I have been with him.
He was not born with that behavior, he learned it from me and his dad.
I don’t think I could love this quote any more.
Its just perfect and so true.
The little stuff is the big stuff.
And lastly, but certainly not least one of my favorite talks To the Mothers is found here.
