The Echoes Of Your Life

My daughter sent me a text

Telling me something

She told someone

About me.

It said

“I told him my mom doesn’t hate anyone”.

That

Made me feel like I was doing something right.

It’s when your kids talk about you

That you can hear

The echoes of your life’s values and behaviors.

  1. So true and what a wonderful thing for your child to say about you!

  2. ksbeth says:

    that is a statement to be treasured. he sees you as the generous and compassionate soul that you are.

  3. Bravo Mom! Well done 🙂

  4. goldenbrodie says:

    Oh, I deeply get you. Yes.

  5. That comment is so simple, but beautiful. You must be raising a great child.

    I don’t have children but this is beautiful.

  7. Well let’s clarify…it depends on what your kids are saying! Ha, ha!

    I especially love the last three lines. Congratulations on raising children who respect and appreciate your values and share them with others.

    Mine are a bit tongue tied I think but sometimes I see a bit of me in what they do. I’ll have to be happy with that for now.
    Go you.

    • Thank you Tric. And you will hear it more, see it more. I didn’t ‘expect’ it and I wasn’t looking for it. That’s one of the reasons I think it so impacted me.

  10. You say it all so well in the last 3 lines 🙂 True joys of life these are. Lovely post!

  11. That echo will resound for many, many years to come. A job well done Colleen!

    You did good, girl.

  13. That is very nice. The check out lady at the grocery story told me that she told her daughter about me, saying, “Remember the woman I told you about with three girls? She’s finally having a boy!” Not quite the same, but a similar feeling. 😉

    That’s certain, Colleen! Our children are our most honest critics, so when the review comes back so beautifully positive–time to celebrate! 🙂
