Thoughts on Childhood


We are slacking a bit in the craft and activity department lately! So, today I just wanted to share that I love being a mother.

I recently heard another mother share this amazing thought (I’m paraphrasing):

My children will grow up and in a few short years they will be adults. From then on, and for the rest of their life, everyone who meets them and knows them will know them as an adult. But as their mother, I get the privilege of knowing them as babies and children. I get to see them experience childhood. What an honor it is.

Every child is precious. Every child is divine. What an honor it is to know the children in our lives.

You said it! That is just how I feel. So love watching them learn and grow. And now to have one getting ready to enter the "real" world, I can feel it even more.
