  1. I love all of your resolutions but one. I don’t believe in being a friend and not a parent. I will always be my children’s parent first and friend second. Kids need us to lead them and raise them up to be the wonderful and successful adults they should be. I believe that all of your other resolutions are absolutely in line with that but I think there is a danger in consciously trying to be their friend first. I think you are definitely being the best momma for your child though. Some great goals on this list.

  2. To be a mother is the biggest blessing of all. You are a gentle, wise soul… and all the time and effort in raising your wonderful son will be beautiful memories for eternity! Happy Mother’s Day, every day of the year!

  3. Being a mother is the hardest, but most rewarding job! I love your resolutions and wish you all the best in working toward those goals! Your son is very lucky to have you!

  4. I think being a mother is the most rewarding yet heart breaking role ever – I love my sons to life and now that they are 19 and 23, I hope the foundation I laid will carry them through the toughest of times.

  5. Thanks for sharing your beautiful resolutions with us. Motherhood is definitely a journey that reveals our greatest strengths and weaknesses. Blessings on your journey.

  6. I too strive to be and do these things for my three boys… except to be their friend and not their parent. I am the ONLY person in the world who can be mom. Nobody else in all of creation can be that to my boys. There are many, many people out there to play the role of friend. I will always be the parent until they are old enough to choose me to be their friend. Hopefully I will have done such a good job at being a parent and directing, teaching, encouraging, loving, forgiving, etc. through the years, that they will all choose me as a friend in the end!

  7. Great post… I do believe in being there friend, but being a parent first is most important… and being a friend will naturally come as years pass with respect and trust making a friendship last forever

  8. This is a great idea, so intentional to consider what to do to make a difference in the lives of our children rather than keep going with the drudgery. Thank you for this!

  9. This is what struck me most :”I resolve to be your role model.” As a parent and mom, our kids get their first experience of community with us and our children look up to us as parents. This leaves me with a question, is the image or example I am imparting to my daughter as good as it should be? I am not perfect but I am a work in progress…

  10. I definitely need to adopt some of these resolutions myself! Like spending quality time without excuses, saying no and meaning it, having fun with my children. I get so caught up in the to-do’s of each day, I end up putting off the thing that matters most: connecting meaningfully with my children, looking them in the eye, enjoying them.

  11. Your son is blessed because you have put so much intentionality into the mother you want to be. May we all strive to do the same and to remind ourselves of our goals, especially in the times when it is not easy.

  12. This is a beautiful list! Maybe you meant to say ” I hope to be not just a parent, but a friend as well.” That’s how my mother has always been to me. My mom and my best friend at the same time! Even through the mother-daughter squabbles. . . Blessings to you!

  13. Sweet resolutions! I like the one about being available. So many times I find myself doing nothing of importance on my phone and then realize that I have missed those moments where I should have been available. I am going to start having an hour or two each day where I put the phone away and focus on my boys and my husband.

  14. What a nice way to celebrate Mother’s Day! I found your link through the Throwback Thursday. I am just browsing it for now, but I do blog if you want to check out my site. Nice to meet you!
