Meet my merry mom mascot

While I was mulling over the idea to start a blog, I happened to see this little lady at my local Family Christian Store.  I thought she was cute and encouraging.  She looked like a mom in her PJs to me, ready to remind me to be the positive parent I want to be.

When I looked at my receipt, it said that she’s a nurse.  I guess that makes sense since this verse references medicine.  But moms dispense medicine regularly, too, so I’m sticking with my original assessment and calling her a merry mom.

I love her Bible verse – Proverbs 17:22:  A merry heart does good, like medicine.  A happy spirit does good not only for ourselves, but for those we’re around as well.  For moms particularly, a cheerful attitude has an uplifting effect on the household.  We’ve all heard the saying that nobody’s happy when mom’s not happy.  Conversely, when mom is cheerful, it creates a positive effect.

My little merry mom is on my desk to serve as an encouragement to make the most of every moment with a thankful heart.  God has truly blessed me with my family, and I want to strive to be the best I can be for them.
