A Mother’s Heart

A Mother’s Heart

I write this as I sit next to my son who is deep asleep, wondering where to begin. As I look at him all these memories and emotions are starting to fill my eyes with tears of joy to just think of the many ways this little soul has stretched my heart and all the work God did and continues to do in my heart that led to this blessing.

Coming to the realization that all these days, all these moments I will never have again only lead me to live a life that places God at the center of my days. In Him I find peace, comfort and renewal as I reflect on the blessings that being the mother to my son has poured into my life. There’s true comfort in knowing that He leads me through all the different seasons of motherhood that my heart will ever experience.

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.

Psalm 127:3

Through my son I found purpose, through my son I see life with fresh eyes and I realize how important it is to leave our children a part of us. Through my personal love notes to him and through these words I leave my son a piece of my heart to read when I can no longer express my love for him.

As mother’s we all have a gift to offer our children and it goes beyond our daily routines, accomplishments and far greater that anything this world can ever offer our children. A mother’s love.

My sweet little love, you are the greatest love my heart has ever known and I am blessed to be your mom.

Blessings,

Raising a reader

Raising a reader

This season in life is leading to a major mom goal, igniting the love of reading into my toddler!

Technically, it started since I first become pregnant where I dreamt of quiet days sitting with an open book, fully captivated, amazed and involved as I shared my love of reading with my son. But that’s not my reality, at least not yet.

We are currently trying to find a balance between a reading routine and not seeing it as a chore or even a punishment, where he can have a healthy, loving relationship with books. For now, I’m sowing small seeds as we work on our bedtime reading routine and being intentional with planning our bookstore trips.

“Children fall in love with books because of the memories created when they snuggle up and read with someone they love.”

As Fall approaches this moms heart is getting emotionally ready to start our school journey. My heart is looking forward to seeing him learn, grow and socialize with children his age. This reality led to setting a goal, reading…all Spring/Summer long!

Which brings me to share the reason I love being a part of the Barefoot Books community that promotes early literacy and I’m beyond thrilled to join this Summer’s Reading Club with my little guy!
