I was just reading a friends blog over at Better is Little, about being a devil at home and it made me think. Do we really act this way at home and not even realize it. Are we mean to our families and then as sweet as candy to others. I am ashamed to admit that I was/am this way. Don’t get me wrong, I am not out of the woods yet, but I work daily on treating my family with the love and respect they deserve. Sometimes I even shock them. There have been times when something has gone wrong and normally in the past I would have blown up, but I kept my cool and even smiled and said, “That’s Ok”. And I really mean that. My family is so precious to me and I want to be the best wife and mother that I can be.
I have witnessed so many people over the years who will speak one way to you and then right in front of you tear their husband or children apart. How sad that is. Yes, I still yell at our children, but in a more corrective manner and I try to treat them as I would anyone else. However, sometimes I admit that is a little hard to do. But in all honesty, right now my husband and children treat me better than others do, so why shouldn’t I be the same with them.
Something to really think about. Thanks Amanda!
