I sense my eldest son is working on a marvelous Mother’s Day gift in his Technology class. Technology is a fancy word for computer class.
Then I had to answer a few questions:
What is my job title? – Mom, Queen of the Toilet Scepter…ok I won’t tease you anymore I just said Consultant / Licensed Trainer ; )
What do I consider my greatest accomplishment? – Being a mom to my two beautiful boys.
What is something that a say all the time? I put that question back in his court…what do you think I say all the time?
I wanted to know what he thinks I say all the time. I wanted to know what he remembers. We mothers say so much that we wonder what is retained. I realize that was a risky question to put back in his court. He could say, “Eat your vegetables,” Clean up your room,” “Will you two stop arguing with one another,” “Did you do your chores?” “Is your homework done?” While I know it was risky, I had some confidence he would remember something more important, more philosophical…something that’s a tool for life.
I hope he always remembers that…no matter how difficult life can be…every single day is a clean slate for all of us. There’s power in knowing that things can always be turned around, that second chances are humbly given to each of us and that trying our very best is never out of our reach.
How will you spend your clean slate each day?
