What else really matters?

October 21, 2015 in Love Notes



You guys. I’m as stubborn as they get, not gonna lie. My parents always tell me that’s how I was when I was little too and so having a stubborn child is probably pay back I’m sure.

I was having a chat with my mom the other day about forgiving. It sounds silly but I get my feelings get hurt if my 2 year old hits me in the head or throws a tantrum… who knew moms could get their feelings hurt from a toddler!?

One thing my mom said was, “Sometimes your kids will hurt your feelings and they will never know, because as long as they know how much you love them what else really matters?”

And I kinda just really love that. I know there will be bigger things later in life than getting hit in the head by a toddler, but I think the principal remains the same. I hope I can forgive more quickly and love more fully.

(Thanks mama! I’ve been thinking about it for weeks now!)

    Totally needed this! I just smacked in the face today for telling my daughter to share the blocks or she couldn’t okay with them. Totally hurt my feelings and makes me want to just get mad at her but I just stopped and had to tell myself she doesn’t understand. I’m so glad I read this: forgive more quickly and love more fully.

    This is so sweet! And I completely agree. Sometimes my son will do things like that on accident (he actually stepped on my hair today and it hurt super bad!), but he knows to say sorry and then give me a hug and everything is okay again 🙂
