Happy Valentine's Day from Kidlutions




Happy Valentine's Day!

When we view our children through the "eyes" of our hearts, it allows us to get through some of the more difficult and challenging moments of parenting.  We've all been there and done that, and those of us on the other side of it all can look back and say, "It was worth it!"

Beautiful! Thank you for that.

Once my son did something really inappropriate. He was really expecting to 'get it'. I wrapped him in my arms and hugged him and told him I loved him. He said he was puzzled...thought he would be in trouble, etc.

I told him not to worry...he would be! But love would come first and last. I could see the misbehavior came from a place of hurt in his heart and wanted to touch on that first and last.

Happy Valentine's Day to you, too!
That brings tears to my eyes. This is especially true knowing the abuse that you have suffered as a child. You are an amazing mom and person. Thanks for sharing that story. It is a story of hope and healing...and that is always a treat to bear witness to!
