Hi Hypocrite.

It baffles me when someone preaches kindness and acceptance for all in one sentence and then spews hate towards someone who doesn't believe the same things they do the next?  Acceptance is acceptance.  I don't think this devoted Christian actually knows what acceptance is, or what love is.

If you love people, then you love them.  Period.  If you are kind towards people, then you are kind towards people. Period.  If you are forgiving, then you are forgiving. Period.  If you have an open heart, then you have an open heart. Period.

You can't just preach about having all these wonderful traits one day, and then spit in the face of someone who simply doesn't want to vote your way, or agree with your politics, religion, economics, and so on and so forth.

To get and receive love, you must show love.  The same goes for respect, and you may not know it - but people see the hypocrisy.  And they may not say anything, and may not ever say anything - but they SEE it!  Let me say that again, PEOPLE SEE YOU'RE A LIAR AND A FAKE.

Bless your heart.

A Good Mother

I have been a mother since I was 16 years old.  I am a biological mother and I am a stepmother.  I am a good mother.  I am a growing and learning mother.  I am not the same mother I was when I was 16 years old, and I am not the same mother I was last month.

I am a good mother because I never stopped being a mother.  I never gave up on myself, or the children I was put on this earth to mother.  I never abandoned anyone.

I am a good mother because no matter what struggles I had, and challenges presented to me on a personal and emotional level, I still loved my children.  Plain and simple.

I am a good mother because if I had a horrible day, not being a good mother-I woke up the next day with a fresh mind and heart and continued to do the best I could.

I am a good mother because I have learned how to forgive myself for my mistakes, no matter how big or how small.

I am a good mother because I don't allow my children to see when they have hurt me, or when things they say or do hurts me to the core.

I am a good mother because I keep my mouth shut, well-because I have learned to keep my mouth shut & pick my battles carefully.

I am a good mother because I did not step in and help my children when they thought I should help them, I let them figure it out on their own.  But little do they know, I was always watching to see them figure it out and would have stepped in and have stepped in when the time came.

I am a good mother, because I would cry myself to sleep some nights with the worry of just trying to be a good mother.

I am a good mother because I see my own flaws and the flaws of my children and I love them, and myself (now) unconditionally.

I am a good mother because of my mother, and the things she has taught me about life and about being a mother.  Things that I do myself as a mother-or things I chose not to do that she did as a mother.

I am a good mother because I talk to other mothers, giving them advice, support, understanding, and do not judge them for mistakes I can clearly see they are making-but not recognizing and I do not point those out to them.

I am a good mother.
