she is my mirror

i've been watching my words
choosing them carefully
doesn't take much thought
as it shouldn't
i'm just more aware
so tonight
before bedtime
we talked
i told her mommy is not perfect
that i have been paying more attention
talking carefully
and i feel better already
she said:
"maybe sometimes when you need to say something,
it can be a little bit mean and a little bit nice.
but i don't know how to do that"
guess we are all human honey!
she is my mirror
i hope that what reflects is something beautiful
what reflects in your mirror?

Thank you so very much. I got your package yesterday and so much appreciate it. I had already been starting to get anxious about my niece's surgery tomorrow, and was so happy to find a box of love and kindness when I got home. I have already been snacking on trail mix today!

I am very impressed by this post also. I have noticed that there is nothing like being a parent to make me want to be a better person since I want to be a good example for them. Mine are only 1 and 3, but I see some of these differences already and wonder if I treat them differently. My youngest seems more spoiled because the oldest can understand more than he can.
