Treasure the Moments

‘Thank you, God, for braids before bedtime. Thank you for messy kitchens and legos on the floor. Thank you for noisy dinner times and late-night conversations, for forts, baby dolls, fingerpaint, and bedtime stories. Thank you for broken wrists and shampoo for brunettes. Thank you for teaching me to number my days. And, God, when I forget, please give me a nudge and number them for me.’

This is such a great post from Hannah Keeley. It’s a wonderful (but teary) look at just how fast time passes that reminds us to cherish the moments we have with our children, messy and all.

‘The Unique Connection’

A seemingly simple experiment that portrays a powerful heart-warming look at the special bond between a mother and child. What a beautiful reminder at how special life is. It’s hard to believe this is an advertisement for Pandora Jewelry – well done! Definitely a must see… and see again…

the future lies in our children…

“One generation full of deeply loving parents would change the brain of the next generation, and with that, the world.”

— Charles Raison

Love who you are

The things that make you feel awkward about yourself now may possibly be the qualities that you appreciate the most later in life.
