They're Watching Me...

Today, as my mood went from ugg to yuck (along with the weather, might I add) I turned around and noticed three of my smallest children watching me.
I stopped stomping around and apologized.
It really made me think about how every single day... in every way... my children watch me. They are looking to see how I react to situations... good and bad. They watch me to see if I really put my trust in God and lean on him instead of on my own understanding of a situation.
My kids will mirror my behaviors... good or bad.
What a responsibility.
God has been challenging me lately... a lot! He is calling me to a higher purpose. He wants me to be more than I have been before.
-more loving
-more kindness
-more attentive
-more giving
Today, I realized that as my children are watching me, they are learning. They will carry on some of the behaviors they see in me and my husband. They will be what we teach them, show them, share with them.
It's time to stop worrying about what the world says is the popular thing to do, say, wear...
It is time to remember that THEY ARE WATCHING ME... and will carry on the lessons I teach.
