There is nothing quite like a mother’s love on this earth. Fiercely protective, incredibly nurturing, a mom has a bond with her children that paints a beautiful picture of God’s fierce, protective love toward us.
And yet, sometimes we forget to show that love. Or our love is overshadowed by all the discipline and correction we have to do during the day. Sometimes it seems like our days are filled with “nos” and “don’t” rather than “I love you’s.”
Take heart, mama… no matter where you are in the parenting journey, you are doing important, Kingdom-building work in raising those little ones. Here are 12 ways a mother showers love on her children—may this encourage you in the long parenting days ahead.
