My alarm goes off at 5:30 am, and after pushing myself to wake up and get ready I also have to wake up my child with kisses and lots of reminders to hurry up. Every day is the same battle and without much thought, we accomplish it. If this sounds like your mornings, I believe you. When I read this article about “Why I love being a parent” the words that stood out were courage, love, and patience. My son and I have shared many moments, and together we have built a family, but sometimes I have felt frustration. In those tough times I looked for and received the support I needed, and together we made it through. The truth is that I love my son. What I love about being a parent is that I feel a sense of pride at what he can accomplish at his young age and most importantly, that I am there to celebrate it with him (sometimes with tears in my eyes.)
Today, ask yourself what do you love of being a parent and share your thoughts with someone that may need your support. To see examples of other parent's thoughts and feelings, follow this LINK.
