My son wrote a book the other day titled "The awesome mom and me." The first page said "I love to cuddle with my mom" it was wonderful :)



Thats very sweet! Its lovely when a child cuddles up with their Mum,its a great time to bond with them.



 I would have liked a cuddly Mum but she wasn't that way sadly!



When i had my own children i couldn't cuddle them enough,even as young women they still tried to sit on my knee,i always made sure they were cuddled every day,even when they were Teenagers i would love to cuddle them,only once a boyfriend came on the scene i didn't get quite so many,but i still got them so it made them more precious all the more!

I think the best thing about being a mom is hearing your children tell you about God. When my kids tell me that God made it snow just for them, or that they know why God made the sunshine. I love listening to them pray, and watching them tell their friends about God. I think that the best thing that my son ever did to warm my heart was one day when I was upset he told me that it would be okay because God loves me. I was instantly in tears.



You have a very sweet son,i have a daughter who became a Christian at 15,sadly my other daughter doesn't believe,i only wish she did!



Both daughters have had it tough but the daughter who believes copes better,says alot really doesn't it!



Their Father is a total non believer(my 1st husband)and has made fun of my daughter that believes,which really bothers me.



don't know how old your son is but enjoy him while you can he sounds lovely!

Seeing them grow into Christian adults is about the best warming your heart can have. God has given us them for a very short time to mold them into people that WANT to continue in the faith. To look out over the crowd and see your children praising God is a humbling experience.



Yes to raise a Christian child is a double blessing,not only will they be good Christian people but they will always have that extra backing in life that God can give when they need it the most.



Its great to give children the choice in the hope they will choose Gods way rather than the other way!

The best thing about being a Mom is definately when your little one tells you "I love youall the way to the Moon and back, Mommy". My oldest is 8, and he tells me this all the time, and even volunteers every week to get up early to help me with the 3 year olds at church just so we can spend time together.



Sounds like you have a real cute son,i never had a son myself,though i would have liked one.



Its a great testament to a parent when their offspring tell them without suggestion that they love them.



Lovely to see you&your son have such a close bond,its a blessing from God.

I am a 57 year old widow. I am also a mother and grandmother. Each year I am more greatful for the joy of being a mom. I have an endless supply of memories from the very beginning of my pregnacy. My children and grandchildren are my greatest joy and comfort. I would like to reach out to anyone out there who might struggle from time to time or should I say overwhelemed with the task of a preschooler at home. The job you are doing is the most important job on earth. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise! It is a priviledge to be able to stay home & raise your child. It is also a difficult task. It helps to remember that in the scheme of things you have just 5 years to make your mark. The five most important years. Some days may seem very long but when you look back you will wonder where the time went. Try to enjoy each day as it unfolds.Speak blessings on your children each day so they may never have to doubt your love. Smile often and encourage more.



 



Hi Aimee,i totally agree with what you say,the 1st 5 yrs of any childs life is one of the most rewarding and  building times of their life!



Once they get to school they start to copy or follow other childrens trends then they are almost lost to us unless we keep a Mothers hold on them till we know they are capable of being off the strings so to speak.



And yes being a Mother is a very important job if not the most important one we'll ever do as women.



I feel for those who couldn't stay home to raise their offspring,as i did,we struggled financially but it was worth it to raise my own children.

My oldest son went off to Florida State University (Tallahassee, FL) in we leave in Orlando, Fl. We are about 4 1/2 hours away. Needless to say, I miss him more than I can say. Our Oldest and first to leave home. About 3 weeks ago, i was talking to him about the fact that i did not think i was going to make it until Thanksgiving without seeing him. That weekend (Friday) As I can in through the garage, my husband was there working on something and I brought him food, so guess who came walking through those doors??? Yes, it was my baby!! My husband and i were so much in shock that it took us a minute or so to realize that he was in front of us. We had a wonderful weekend!!



 



Ivette,that warmed my heart,what a lovely son to show up like that for you!



I originate from England and have 2 daughters over there,haven't seen them for 2 yrs and have another year b4 i can see them again,I am  getting used to the seperation but it doesn't stop me missing them!



But we keep in touch by phone,mail or email,so i have to be grateful for that,years back people didn't even have that,oh it would have been much harder then!

I think the best part of being a mum/mom, is also the hardest. My husband and I have two adult daughters. I remember when they were children, how important it was to us to raise them in the Fear of The Lord. Knowing that we were being an example to them that would hopefully cause them to want to live the Christian life was amazing. It was also terrifying at times because I am human and not perfect. So I know I made mistakes, some of them small and some of them major mistakes that could have cost me a relationship with my daughters, or their relationship to God. We are so thankful that both girls are Living a Life the is Pleasing to God.



 



No matter how perfect we try to be as parents,children will always unwittingly show up our flaws,this is how we can learn from our children i reckon.



Its not easy being a parent,we none of us can really do it perfectly,we are all human and are meant to make mistakes,thats how we learn,we should never beat ourselves up about it,though in the past i have.



Again,we are only human,we also learn by our mistakes,same as our children,thats what helps make us better parents and them better grown ups.



I also have 2 grown daughters,and when i look back i am proud i went to every school event,every parent evening,every sports day,i'm sure they look back and appreciate it.



One of my daughters became a Christian under her own steam when she was 15 which made me proud,my other daughter wasn't so forthcoming,but i don't believe we should force it,it has to be done willingly,they have to come around on their own,as long as they are loving and giving then you haven't done a bad job!

The best part about being a mom is that your children bring out things in you that you never thought you could possibly do or handle. My children also remind me that some days you just need to stop and smell the flowers. Whether that flower be reading them a book or just stroking their hair while they fall asleep, when you know ther is dishes to be done or laundry to be folded. They will teach you what is really important, just don't miss those moments.



 



I agree with you,having children makes us look at life and all it has to offer so differently,and in a positive way!



Children have such an innocent way of looking at things and help us to see whats important and what isn't quite so,we should really pay attention to how children see life and take notice,if they are happy then it makes us happy but it can also work the other way,if they see us happy they feel happy too,its like a snowball effect i reckon,we could learn so much from our children!

Quoting Rhonda:

Just having my child warms my heart! He is an absolute joy and blessing from God! After the agony of miscarriages, He is truly my miracle in every way! People ask me if it's hard to be a mom of a developmentally disabled child and some days are kind of harried, but he is doing so much more than other children with his particular challenges! I wouldn't trade anything in the world for him!



 



Evey child is a joy & a blessing,so unique in their own way i reckon.



So pleased for you that you are so happy with your child,its all in the parenting i think,the more we put into our children the more we get out of them,and it sounds like its all positive for you which is great.

Quoting Melissa:

Well, my son is only 7 but he is the light of my life. Everything he does warms my heart. Just seeing his smiling little face makes me sooo happy. I want nothing more than for him to have a happy life. He told me the other day that I was the best and coolest mom in the whole world. That made me feel like I am doing a great job raising him into a well behaved young man. It warms my hear twhen he tells me "I just love you so much" Nothing can ever replace that feeling of when your child tells you this out of no where and then gives you a big hug and kiss!!! I love him more than words can say!! I love being a mom. Nothing better!!



 



Hi Melissa,yes you sound like a real good Mum to me,and it obviously shows in your sons responses to you,i believe that the way a child responds to their parent is proof enough of how good a parent we are!



My own daughters never used to let a day go by without hugs&kisses and telling me how much they loved me but now they have men in their life i guess i now come 2nd,but thats ok they still tell me how much they love me,which is great!



Even as grown women they still wanted to sit on my knee,aahh such is life as a mother!
