When our kids are little, they need us to be there for them to meet their basic needs, our days are filled with never-ending feedings and diaper changes, we are also lacking sleep and more often than not we barely have enough time to think about our own well-being. We check our to-do lists and are constantly focus on doing, doing, doing, we end up focusing on the urgent and often forget about the important, to just BE.
The most valuable gift you can ever give your kids is to slow down, stop for a moment and between those little daunting tasks, delight in your child’s presence, be present without an agenda, for just a moment let your child know I See You, I Hear You, You Matter. Out of all the things you could ever offer your child, there is one thing he is looking for from the moment he is born, he wants a connection with you. Above all else, connection is the way your child feels loved.
Offering the gift of your presence will set the child on a path where he knows he is worth loving, he will love himself and naturally, he will know how to love others. Hold your children tight tonight. Their pure light needs to be protected so it doesn’t diminish but on the contrary, becomes brighter and brighter from the relationship with you. Cherish all the lessons your children came here to teach you, motherhood could be the catalyst for your evolution.
