Well, it’s been three days since I asked my beautiful daughter and handsome son what do they think of me as their mother. I copied and pasted their answers below:
My daughter’s response:
😐 why’d you asked that? You’re a wonderful mother
And my son’s response:
You’re a great mom
My babies are all grown up but I still see them as always my babies. I love them so very much. They both are young people of very few words as you can see. I know they get that from their dad because also as you can see I am one of many words.
I actually didn’t know what to expect but then I did in a way. Have you ever felt like that when asking a touchy question? I hoped for a positive comment but thought what if the answer started off with, “If you want me to be honest, mom”. I think I would’ve cried. But my heart became so full over their answers because I know them. I know the only time Brittney talks excessively is when she’s experienced doing something she loves, like talking about her daughter. Trey does so when he’s expressing something that has upset him badly. Any other time the few words mean everything ok and that’s just fine with me.
In the video I spoke about that my niece put on Facebook, the young children made their moms feel just like my kids made me feel. That is special and amazing. I suggest any mom’s who read this blog shoot their kids a text asking what do they think of them as a mom. See what they think of you. I guarantee it will make your whole day!!
This is important to me because I want to be for my kids what and who my mother is for me. She is the biggest part of my heart. I have so much respect and love for her that when I think about it, I get overwhelmed with emotion. I know it’s way too early for a Mother’s Day blog so I’ll just say this. If I am a third of the beautiful mother my mom has been to me, I really got something great right in this world!
My children may not see it now, but they’re so blessed to have both of us in their lives. All my grandparents passed away before I was born except my grandfather, my mom’s dad. We got the pleasure to get to know him later in his life. He walked me down the aisle at my wedding. He was such a character. I really miss him.
My kids will one day say that about my mom. Then they’ll realize just how blessed they were. My hope is that they realize this sooner rather than later, and help me take care of her in her golden years. Maybe one day their children will help care for me in my golden years. Only God knows. For now, I’m just going to think back on their words every time I get to missing my daughter or think I’m not doing enough for my son. I’ll cherish those few words of gargantuan meaning forever!
