Taking It For Granted

I have witnessed something the last two days that rocked me to the core with mothers and children. yesterday at chick fil a a young mother probably about 26 was telling another mother that she cannot wait for the nanny to start next week, she can't wait to be free of her 2 girls who were probably preschool age and sitting at the table when she was saying this. Today my friend T and I and our kids were at mcdonalds for a playdate and another mother of a little preschool girl snatched her little one up and told her " Your a horrible daughter, just a bad, bad daughter" My heart crumbled and broke for this little one. There are people right now that would give everything to have kids to love and these 2 mothers are taking it for granted. Come on people, don't take it for granted if you have kids to love and hold and teach. They are only little once and then before you know it they are gone. Don't be the moms in the restaurants crushing your kids with hurtful words and stupid comments.

" Let us look upon our children;let us love them and train them as children of the covenant and children of the promise. These are the children of God". Andrew Murray

Oh, these are such sad moments. I hope these children have others in their lives who give them the love and assurance they need ~ of course nothing will make up for a lack of motherly love : (

I was just at Walgreens and heard a father tell his little boy (that looked to be around Lauren's age) he was a loser, it broke my heart
:(.The little boy looked so pitiful, It took everything I had to not tell the father he was the loser! So sad!
