to be like a duck

Dec 3, 2012

I want to be like this mother duck.

She leads her children with calmness and surety even though they are being buffeted by the wind and blown head over heals. Often times in life we are knocked down and blown around. As mamas we have some choices to make. We can panic, we can fall apart and stop leading our families, we can give up, or we can be like this mama duck and put one foot in front of the other, hold our heads high, shake off, and lead our children with confidence, faith, and love.

Never thought I would find a mothering role model in a duck!

    I’ve used a picture of a mother duck to remind myself to let things roll off my back just like the rain and water doesn’t get to the duck. When the storms of life rain down on me, I want to let it just roll right off. Thanks for sharing the video.

    At first your blog post came up with the mother duck video, but then it changed to an eel and cleaner shrimp, and I can’t view the mother duck one. ?

      Hmmm, I tried to fix it. Reload your page and see if it is working now.
