This week was a challenge with Jude. My Mommy Heart was broken at some of his comments but as I talked to many of my friends and family I was reassured that Jude is “normal”. We will all get through this…hopefully.
Today I want to exclaim that my 3 words for the week are “I LOVE YOU!” Jude, I love you, I love you even when you say you DON’T love me. I love you when your ears seem to be broken. I love you even when you tell me to go away. My little Turtle, I love you more than you can even imagine and I am thankful for the struggles and challenges we have.
Recently, there has been a lot of death in the blog world. Mother’s dying too young, babies passing away of a terminal cancer, and a wild child like Jude simply having fun in the wrong place at the wrong time. Heartbreaking. I do not know these families from Adam but as I read their stories I shed tears. I cannot imagine being in their shoes.
I am thankful that I get to have these challenges with Jude even though they break my heart. I am thankful that I get to hug this crazy guy after he decides he DOES love me! What a challenge we have as parents. Raising well behaved children and yet the idea of being upset with your child and then having a tragedy happen makes me sick to think about. These 3 words will always leave my mouth when we part ways, even if we are in a challenging situation with behavior.
Friends. Tell your loved ones you love them. I LOVE YOU! How simple are those 3 words? Live each day to the fullest.
I LOVE YOU!
Link up with Mel at Never a Dull Moment! Thanks for bringing back this great link up!
Would love to know how this went, this age thrills me and drives me insane! It's great to be able to see them learn new things; but not being able to handle the emotions? They are definitely a handful. We gave a rule/saying in our home, "you don't have to like me, but you'll always love me"
