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!)
