Every evening when everyone else in the house is asleep, i lie in bed and think of everything i did wrong as a mother that day. i think of how i didn't pay enough attention to my youngest when he was talking to me, or i was too short tempered, didn't finish laundry, the house was a mess when hubby came home. i list the actions one by one in my list in my head. Analyzing and scrutinizing every moment from the day.
What i don't focus on is how many hugs i got from my kids without asking, how my youngest recited the story of Joseph word for word, or how when my husband came home he was oblivious to the mess, and told me how nice i looked.
These are beautiful moments that i have been overlooking. What do you think of at night? i am making a choice as of right now to focus and treasure these moments in the evening, and through out the day. i pray you do the same. Let's let our evening thoughts build us up, and not take the small joys for granted.
