For many years, when the kids had a "boo boo"(A pain that didn't break the skin) I would give them "Special Lotion". Guaranteed to heal all the hurts. After applying the lotion, we had some snuggling time & they were off. The next time they got hurt, they would ask for "special lotion".
My 8 year old figured it out today. He said "mind tricks are very powerful." I told him that love and attention heals a lot of pain.
A little while later, Faith came running in the room crying because she fell. Will grabs the lotion and asks her if she wants some "special lotion". He put it on her knee, gives her a hug & she's off running again. Will turns around and says, "You were right, Mom."
We all need a little love and attention from time to time.
I am a born again Christian. I am a child of the King. I love spending time with my family. We enjoy going to the mountains in the summer and the beach in the fall & winter. I have been married to my "beloved" for 14 years. I am a homeschool mom of 3. Researching is entertaining.
I love dancing with my children in the rain, singing in the car with the music turned up loud(when I'm alone), sewing, going barefoot, drinking hot tea in the fall & winter & homemade lemonade in the spring & summer.
