More stuff.........


WHAT I WOULD TELL THEM:


(If I knew what to say.)

You are a miracle.

And I have to love you this fiercely: So that you can feel it even after you leave for school, or even while you are asleep, or even after your childhood becomes a memory.

You’ll forget all this when you grow up. But it’s okay.

Being a mother means having your heart broken.

And it means loving and losing and falling apart and coming back together.

And it’s the best there is. And also, sometimes, the worst.

Sometimes you won’t have anyone to talk to.

Sometimes you’ll wonder if you’ve forgotten who you are.

But you must remember this: What you’re doing matters.

And you have to be brave with your life so that others can be brave with theirs.

The truth is, being a woman is a gift. Tenderness is a gift. Intimacy is a gift. And nurturing the good in this world is a nothing short of a privilege.

That’s why I have to love you this way. So I can give what I have to you. So that you can carry it in your body and pass it on.

I have watched you sleep. I’ve kissed you a million times. And I know something that you don’t, yet:

You are writing the story of your only life every single minute of every day.

And my greatest hope for you, sweet child, is that I can teach you how to write a good one.



oh…those words.

Got this from Emily Anderson who in turn, linked us to here. So powerful, and sometimes, maybe more days than others, I need to remember this.  After being locked in the house with them nonstop, this is a great reminder for me.


In other news...Magistical Memories has all of their new releases up and ready for pickin'.  You can go here and check 'em all out.  Did you see that cupcake?  LOVE!

Don't forget to check out the post below for a sneak peek at the March kit from The Story Matters, and the RAK is still open until Thurs. night.

Have a great Wednesday!!
