What I'v been thinking today is...

Friday, May 03, 2013

Well what I'v been thinking today is ... what are the really important things that I want my kids to remember about me when I am gone? I know for sure that I want my 14 year old daughter, Luna, to remember me as a kind, understanding mother that is always there to talk to about ANYTHING and I mean ANYTHING I want her to know that no matter how big or small something is in her life, how happy or sad, I am hear to listen and help if I can. I could go on in more detail but, I will save that for my journal. I just know that what my kids will remember is not about how fat I was but what a kind and supportive mother I was.

    This is a good goal, and I suspect your daughter already thinks of you as a warm loving mother. Please reread what ISTATEOFDENIAL wrote, it is really god advice! emoticon

    Ask yourself what you can do to help her think of you that way? How you look often fades from memory, especially when overpowered by what you do. When you're there for her, being positive and supportive, loving her as great as only her mother can, then that means more than how you look. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't be healthy - the healthier you are the better chance you'll be around much longer for your daughter! You can have many more years to be there for her and be a great influence to help her be healthy as well.

    She's old enough to help you too. Ask for her support, perhaps even ask her to exercise with you once in a while and cook some healthy meals with you. This will show her how much she means to you and help her learn that being healthy is important and fun! The memories you make together will live with her forever.

    Oh my goodness! Why are you thinking this way?

    How do you remember your mom? My mom was loving & caring for a lot of years. When she had her first mini stroke, she changed. She got really angry with me. But I still love her. Even when she was at her worst.

    I am sure your children know that you love them.....hug them every day and tell them often. It should not matter what size we are.....
