Day 197, July 14

I am always impressed by strong mothers, those who make teaching and guiding their children a priority.  In a small newspaper, I read about one such mother.  With three children, ages 4, 2, and 5 months, she makes time for holding the children in her lap and singing such songs as "I'm Trying to Be Like Jesus" to them.

When it would be much easier to go grocery shopping by herself, she finds the patience to take her children with her, letting them help her select the items for the family's meals.  She recognizes that her children learn by observing her and strives to make her example a worthy one.

So, for today, I am grateful for mothers who teach, by word, by example, by love.

  1. And here I am thinking that going to the grocery store and being able to leave the kids at home is so wonderful. :)
