The Mission of Motherhood Quotes
When we choose to graciously overlook our children's messes and accidents, we are teaching them to be patient and forgiving with the mistakes of others. When we react sensitively, thoughtfully, and patiently to them we are helping to instill these qualities in their lives. As they benefit from our unconditional love, they extend it to others as well.
Making this choice ahead of time means I expect problems and needs to arise and will be ready to deal with them in peace instead of impatience and resentment.
The hunger for love, affirmation, attention, and acceptance is a deep drive that will search for fulfillment.
As much as we try to control life, we cannot make it behave.
