scenes from a mother's day


My life is beautiful... my cups overflows.

When I was little I wanted to be a teacher... but as I grew, my dream changed, and I just wanted to be a mom.  I am thankful that I get to be theirs.  It is hardly ever easy, and these past weeks have stretched my heart towards the breaking point, and maybe past it.  But it is always worth it.  Always worth being continually amazed by these children who have grown taller than me... by their kindness, their faith, and the way they see & tackle the world.  It seems that I learn as much from them as they have learned from me.

Last night, when I dug my toes into the cool sand after such a beautiful day, I exhaled, letting the heavy stuff move on.  It is necessary... to make room for all the grace and love just waiting to move in.
