5 year old daughter: Mommy I don't feel like going to Mass.
Me: Sometimes mommy doesn't feel like cooking dinner.
5 year old daughter: You don't?!
Me: I don't, and sometimes I don't feel like cleaning the toilet.
5 year old daughter: Ew it's gross!
Me: Super gross! And sometimes I don't feel like washing everyone's dirty socks and underwear.
5 year old daughter: Mine aren't dirty!
Me: They were before I washed them! Do you know why I do all these things that I don't feel like doing?
5 year old daughter: Because you love us!
Me: Jesus knows how hard it is for us to do things for Him. When He wants us to go to Mass, or wants us not to sin, He isn't asking us to do hard things. He is asking, "Do you love Me?"
5 year old daughter: Love is hard.
*For anyone who doesn't feel like going to Mass today.*
YOU ARE WORTH MUCH MORE THAN JUST NUMBERS.
You are worth more than:
what your gpa/grades are,
how much income you earn,
how much you can spend,
how much you weigh,
how many friends you have, etc.
You cant quantify your self-worth because you are more successful than numbers can describe."
