Help Them Know They Have Their Momma’s Love

     One of the most important gifts we can give our children is the security of having their mother’s love.  Many-a-country-song is brought to mind, one of which has the lyric, “Only your momma’s love” (upon looking it up, the lyric might in fact be “All of your mama’s love” from The Wilkinson’s “26 Cents”).  We can help our children know that their momma loves them with all of her heart—and that their Momma’s (and Daddy’s) love is all that they really need to make it through anything—by spending time with them, listening to them, hugging them, laughing with them, and showing them that we care about them in everyday little ways.  There’s no special ingredient to this formula—only a willingness to keep our own hearts open so that love always flows through us to our children.
