Mom And Child With Down Syndrome Share Sweetest Daily Routine

Be sure to have the tissues close by for this following clip! A mother and her child with Down syndrome share the sweetest daily routine.

Life is often an unfair experience. Everyone is dealt a different set of cards, and those circumstances are rarely, if ever, equal. For whatever reason, some people encounter more than their fair share of troubles and hardships. 

However, exchanging the cards that life deals out is impossible. At that point, life becomes about making the most of what we’ve been blessed with and given. It’s also about showing kindness and love to and encouraging those who may encounter more trials in life. 

Some individuals may require more encouragement than others. A kind and uplifting word might just be what someone needs to realize and understand: that they matter and are loved by God. No one is worthless in God’s eyes, and everyone has a purpose in life.

One mother has found a beautiful way to reinforce this idea in her child with Down syndrome, and she does it daily. 

A clip posted on YouTube explains that Melanie, a mother in Utah, and her son, Hudson, look into the mirror every day and say positive affirmations—the ritual, the clip explains, started as the youngster was about to begin preschool.

Some of what they say while staring in the mirror include, “I am smart,” “I am beautiful” and “I am loved.” 

During her and Hudson’s appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Melanie stated that Hudson has started doing them independently, unprompted by his loving mother. She recalled being in the grocery store with him and hearing him say, “I am strong” and “I am smart.”

What a simple but effective and beautiful way to help a young child know and understand their worth, that they matter and are loved.

Ephesians 4:32 “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving each other, even as God also in Christ forgave you.”
