Appreciation for the Little Ones

Why does it seem that people truly no longer value the life of a child? Not that this is entirely something new, but it is something that has been brought to the spotlight a lot lately. From being neglected, banned, abused, and sadly, murdered, their little lives are no longer sacred.

I had two experiences in the past week where my children were targeted for basically being children. I was in two different restaurants the past two Sundays after church and heard comments from other patrons that they wish more restaurants would start a no child ban. Heads were shaking and sighs were loud enough to be heard across the restaurant. The commenting went on pretty much the whole time we were eating at the restaurant(s). My children are 4 and 2 years old and act like normal 4 and 2 year olds in a sit-down restaurant. They are little children and I plan on letting them be little for as long as I can!

I was angry, to say the least. These are my children and like any other mother, I am pretty protective of them. I am not the type of person who likes confrontation, so I just sat there and kept my thoughts to myself. But it bothered me for quite awhile afterwards and I am still a little upset about both situations.

Instead of letting their ignorance get to me though, I am going to enjoy my children and show my appreciation to them as much as I can each and everyday! Children are a gift {Psalm 127:3} and gifts are meant to be enjoyed!
