I know I'm way overdue here, but bear with me. It's been a busy week, and I learned a few things today, but tonight I just want to share with you something my best friend told me. Mariah writes a blog about her wonderful and sweet son, Miller, who is Autistic. She posted a new entry tonight and I commented on it. This is the little conversation that followed:
Me: More parents ought to be like you ^.^ (including me!)
Mariah: aww, thanks. You're a great mom too! ^.^
Me: Thanks, I try. I fail a lot, lol, but I try. :) Love ya!
Mariah: It's not failing, it's trial and error ;-) With a very large learning curve
I just LOVE that! So many times as parents we get caught up in all the things we feel like we're doing wrong and forget to give ourselves credit for the wonderful things we do for our children. And this can be applicable to more than just parenting of course! Those of you who aren't parents (yet), do you give yourself enough credit for the wonderful things you do in your marriage? How about at school? Work? Next time you feel like beating yourself up for making a mistake, just remind yourself of everything you do right, no matter how insignificant it may seem to you. :)
