I love my kids! They are an amazing blessing in my life and I wouldn't trade them for anything. Although I have days when I forget to show it as much as I should. More often then it should happen I find myself feeling bad that we didn't play more, or be silly, or noisy. I give lots of hugs and say "I love you" often enough, but I wonder sometimes if my actions always back up what I feel for my little ones.
I've been following Paul Cardall's blog (link on the side bar) and he posted a quote this evening that I'm going to put on my bathroom mirror, a gentle reminder of what my kids should feel.
"All you need in your life is a mother who loves you and you have within you the power to become a giant among men."
