Motivation For Moms – Thankful

Take opportunities to give thanks by taking turns around the dinner table to express what you are thankful for.

Taken from Motivation For Moms

This is such a wonderful reminder to us moms. Most of the time, especially when we have little kids, we tend to focus on the things we need to get done, or we are reprimanding them. This reminds me to talk with my kids while they are still young and to listen to what they have to say. Starting young, this may help us nurture an open communication with our kids.

Another thing is that we have to be thankful for every little thing. The Bible has instructed us to be constantly in an attitude of thankfulness. What better way to teach this to our kids than to practice this with them.

Any special tips?

    Great post. I love your attitude. It’s amazing how we get caught up in the sometimes less desirable part about motherhood, but then we look back and think Wow…look how good I have it. http://frazzledsupermom.blogspot.com/

    nice post…it’s also great to keep in mind that they do have their own missions in our life(this always includes, for us their parents, to be a better person than we were when we don’t have them yet)…sometimes (especially when they get too kulit) we tend to forget that they are here because they are given by God…*wink* angels in disguise…

    yeah we should always be thankful and just stop complaining specially when the kids are around. sabi nga nila always think positib.

    Having a happy disposition in life does not only lightens your trials but also helps your kids to grow stronger. :)

    when problems seem bigger than we think, we tend to focus on them and stop looking at our kids and see the goodness of God despite the trials. it is always good to be thankful ALL THE TIME. God will not give us a cross we cannot carry. with that attitude, you’ll be more thankful for the cross you are carrying because it is much lighter that the others :)

    Children particularly infants & young children make some parents wonder whether their own love can be stronger than their rage.And I have observed children in some families become chronically angry & given to acting out because they weren't getting enough attention & conversation especially when problems occur in the family.And you're absolutely right,be thankful in every little thing.This is really a nice post.
