You Have Taught Me

MomWhat it means to love unconditionally.

That no matter what you say or do, nothing could ever stand in the way of my love for you.

To enjoy the insignificant moments.

Whether curled up to watch our favorite movie or baking a cake together.

To treasure the past but look forward to the future.

The yesterdays are like books of memories from which I can pull off a shelf and read with pleasure.  Yet the future is like an unwritten manuscript just waiting for our stories to be told.

That life is too short.

So there isn’t time to stay mad or get upset about things that won’t really matter in the long run.

That sometimes less is more.

Less words spoken, less time spent dwelling on spilled milk and missing socks.

The value of time.

It passes so quickly!  Even though others have told me this, only through personal experience has this been fully realized.

How to trust less in myself and more in God’s grace.

Because it’s only through His grace I can overcome my mistakes.

  1. Hi Stephanie,

    Thank you for your blog post. As the Dean of Students at a college preparatory Christian high school, and also the mother of three adult children, this is right on. From my position as Dean, I bring parents into the mix right off the bat because they are the parents; they love unconditionally and know their child to the core. My school values partnership with parents. They’ve made the right choice.
