You are Loved

Happy St. Valentine’s Day!

I want you to know, YOU ARE LOVED!

Some of you will be having a special dinner with your special someone. And some of you it will just be the same day as any other day.

Same chores, same struggles, same meltdowns.

I’ve been there! Many times. Many birthdays, mother’s days, you name it.

Making plans for a fabulous day and your kids just don’t care. Maybe they are too little to understand. Maybe they are just in their own little world. They can recognize it’s special for a minute and then go back to whatever is important to them.

I want to tell you, mom, don’t take it personally (so hard to do!).

On the day's that are tough just remember that you are loved

Your kids love you.

Even when they are ignoring you, yelling at you, saying mean and hurtful things to you (yep! I’ve been called a terrible, horrible mom by my 8-year-old.) THEY DO LOVE YOU!

I recently saw a meme on Pinterest, from Spiritually Speaking Printable .

I think it’s the same for kids that love you and know that you love them back no matter what. But they may show it in unloving ways.

I’ve had plenty of birthday and mothers day where they were just like any other day. And I’ve had just regular ol’ days when no major meltdown’s happened, everyone played nicely, did their work.

Then I hear the most wonderful words from C “Mama, you’re the best mama ever! And you’re the best teacher ever!”


It is so rare for him to express himself like that! Those words are so precious to me.

With all of this what I’m trying to say is…


It may not always come out the way it should. It may not always be shown by your kids the way you want it to be.

YOU ARE LOVED (anyone else hearing the song in your head right now?)


You are loved
If your heart’s in a thousand pieces
If you’re lost and you’re far from reason
Just look up; know you are loved
Just look up; and know you are loved
When it feels like something’s missing
If it hurts but you can’t find healing
Just look up, know you are loved
Just look up, know you are loved

(Stars Go Dim)
