This is a very exciting time of the year for people to spend time with their sweetheart. For me, Valentine’s Day is also my middle son Amir’s birthday! Of course, I would have loved to spend the day getting pampered by my husband, but I had to make sure my son feels as special on his day as he is to me. In my household, we take birthdays very seriously so Valentines meant that my Prince received everything he wanted and more. However, towards the end of the day, it became a hassle. Amir wanted to go home and play with his toys but I kept thinking of things we could do to make the most of his birthday. He already had his party with cake and ice cream, spent time with his friends, so it isn’t that he wanted more…. more so that I did. My husband kept asking what did I want to do later that night but all I could think about is Amir. So actually spending time with my husband on sweethearts day never registered in my head and this is because I didn’t balance it correctly.
Being a wife and a mother can be hard to juggle. If too much attention is given to your children your husband starts to feel alone and vice versa. Why couldn’t I have gone home called a babysitter and went out with my husband? Would that have been too much to ask?
Too often we get caught up on what we feel is right instead of what is actually the right thing to do. I should have shown my son the best birthday and showed my husband that on this sweethearts day he is my ultimate Valentine, choosing my time wisely and balancing my scale evenly.
Remember show endless love and prayer works!
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,
