Cultivate Theme

When I'm snuggling with Ashlyn right before bed she often hugs me and
tells me she loves me. Then she says my favorite thing..."your a good
mommy". Which I don't really believe, but it is so nice to hear it from
your own daughter. I hope she always thinks that despite my many
mistakes.

1 Peter 4:8 "Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers
a multitude of sins".

I love this verse because as a parent I fail so many times, it's not easy
being a parent and the only guarantee is that I am going to mess
up. But this verse gives me a safety net, no matter how much I mess up
they will always be able to say "she wasn't perfect but she loved us!" I
feel this way about my own parents, certainly not perfect and I can
think back where they should have done things different. But I never
have doubted for a moment if they love me and that has made all the
difference.
So am a good mommy? Maybe some of the time, but more than that I love my girls to pieces and they know it!
