Or should I say, mirror mirror walking around my home. I have noticed on multiple occasions that my children mirror my attitude. Sometimes I'm a little slow and I will start noticing their pitiful attitudes and wonder where in the world my sweet darlings have gone. Then it hits me over the head like a ton of bricks, my sweet attitude has gone MIA as well and most likely it is holding their attitudes hostage. If Mama becomes grumpy, the children become grumpy. If Mama becomes lazy, the children become lazy. Oh how hard that is to admit sometimes.
Of course, it does work the other way as well. If Mama is cheerful, it helps the young uns to be cheerful. If Mama is working hard around the home, it encourages the little ones to do the same. Last but not least, if Mama has a critical attitude of Daddy, so will the children. Mamas, let us be careful in our attitudes and in our speech, lest we lead our little ones astray.
So, what is the reflection in your mirror telling you?
