Stand in Gratitude

If we pay attention to our lives, we can find many things to be grateful for. Regardless if they are seen as small or large, blessings come in all shapes and forms. We have to take time to be grateful for those things we can sometimes take for granted such as the eyes to read this post. I am grateful to be able to walk, talk, read, write, hear, and type these words. I am grateful as my husband prays at each dinner “to be in the right frame of mind.” I am grateful that my son is alive as I just found out that a two-year old died a few days ago strangled by the cord to the window blinds. Do we not know that anything can be taken from us at any given time? Any freak accident can happen at any given time.

Have you taken time today to stand in gratitude today? What are you grateful for? Will this be a one time event, if you did? Or will you continue to live a life of gratitude. This is how we teach our children to be grateful and happier. Please feel free to share your comments as you become more conscious of the life you have.

Until next time,

Being a mother-From “Mother’s words of wisdom. From my heart to yours. Building within”

Being a mother

Being a mother is important to me,
It is now part of my destiny.
Addressing my child’s and my own fears,
Wiping away the many tears,
Being a mother is important to me.

I learn so much from you and me.
How can I be the best mother you see?
Giving you all the tools to grow,
As you become more conscious of the life you now know,
You are my son and not just for show.
How can I look you in your eyes and not be who I am supposed to be?
Being a mother is important to me.

I must be conscious of my activities.
I cannot be there to protect you from all your falls.
I hope that you take the time to learn from them all.
To stand firm in the mist of adversity,
Do strive to be in the driver’s seat of your destiny.
Do not live in another’s misery.
Being a mother is important to me.

Be proud of who you are,
There is none other like you by far.
You were made beautifully,
Being true to who you are is important to me,
Know that I will be here as much as I can,
To lift you up when you need a hand,
I love you so much, my son
Our journey through life together has just begun.

Self Esteem

Self Esteem

I am self esteem
Can you see me, hear me,
Or taste me?
I am self esteem
Where do you find me?
I am self esteem
I am with you 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week
Taking in all the internal and external information
That could help or hurt me.

I am self esteem
I need your help to protect me.
I help you realize your authenticity
Your dreams and fantasies…….

I am self esteem
Are you paying attention to me?
Release all of your negative feelings
About yourself and replace them with positive ones
Focus on the present
and realize the many possibilities.

I am self esteem
Protect me to help bring about happiness.
I am self esteem
I am you.
We are one and not two.
