Making Life Not Suck
When we got home, my husband had these beautiful flowers waiting for me, and my daughter had made me a few cards. The first she made from all the kids, and read "You Put up with a Whole lot of Whining..." on the front. When you open it, it reads, "...But let's stop talking about Dad. Happy Mother's Day!"
The other card was just from my daughter. The one in the picture above. Here's a close up.
I was pretty happy with her, and with her perception of me.
Okay, it may seem really snarky to some people, but isn't this the very idea of what being a good mom is all about? Middle School kinda sucks for most kids. In lots of ways. And High School isn't always a picnic either.My job is to help them make it through it all. For her to write this, and mean it, means something besides wanting to make me smile on Mother's Day. Which it did.
Who helps you make Life not Suck? Who do you help make it through the day?
