mother*wonder Monday - definition

Photobucket

Mother*wonder is my way to 
attribute a phrase
to recognizing the
  details of the day
as a mom.

It's stopping in the 
noise of life
to see little what makes
your life 
with your children special.

It's giving attention to 
what they will remember.

So many times we can 
easily remember and guilt ourselves
over the things we did not do.

Mother*wonder is taking 
time to acknowledge
in the moment
how you are impacting your
child's life.

Maybe you didn't make the cookies,
but did you sit and really enjoy them
with your children?

Maybe at bedtime you couldn't
come up with the greatest-story-ever-told
{I think that one was already penned
a few years ago anyway}
but did you give your time and love?

Mother*wonder is the rituals
we create to give our children peace,
comfort, security, and confidence to grow.

I will be posting regularly
on Mondays
about mother*wonder.

You will see the little signature above each post.

Sometimes it may be a little story about our week,
or ideas for finding more time for wonder.  
Ways to capture those moments, and slow things down.

I hope you will find some inspiration as I do from you,
 and I would love to hear any ideas you have.

thank you,

  1. I'm looking forward to this ... I need all the encouragement I can get to stop and look for the wonder amidst the chaos of everyday life with 3 littles.
