~Grateful For The Relationship~
November 26, 2017 2:46pm CST
Hey everyone. I hope your doing well today! =) Today is day 26 of the grateful challenge and I am grateful for the relationship I have with my girls. I never had a mother/daughter bond with my own mother and that was something I always said I would do differently when I had my children. I am so grateful that it's something I DO have with my girls especially. My oldest son also comes to me with everything as well-which is awesome too of course! My daughter's come to me about everything including boys they like, their walk with God, things they have done wrong and don't know how to fix, kids picking on them, etc... Just everything-it's amazing. =)

@LovingMyBabies I had to ask kay to stop talking to me about her marriage tough. It was killing slowly each time. She began to share a little but I try to stop her as often as possible. I wish it were a romance to share but it's not so I can't be party to it.

That sounds wonderful! I'm glad you are able to experience that with your children and I'm sorry you didn't with your own mom. I miss mine terribly. I hope to have that kind of relationship with my kids as they age! Right now, I did get to hear about my 5 year old's "boyfriend".
I learned some of my "best" parenting the same way that you did, by doing the opposite that my mother did. Sad, but true. You are very lucky to have the relationship that you do with your children, I feel so blessed to have that with our son and now with his new wife. Its such an incredibly wonderful feeling being so connected isn't it?

That is so awesome to hear Jennifer! I had a great relationship with both of my parents growing up, and I wanted to make sure I was the best father I could be to my own kids. I am not perfect by any means, but I think I have done a great job with my kids, as they are both outstanding kids, and I am very proud of the young adults they have become. And I think you will be able to say the same thing about all of your kids when they reach adulthood! Keep up the great work!
