the Savior and his mama
Just some things both big and small around our home today. I'm pausing to take notice and find joy....even when rooms are messy and there's so much to do and my toddler is begging constantly for chocolate.

I'm especially focusing on the last one. That Savior so small and his mama. What a Gift He is.

What has made you stop and smile today?

Be blessed, friends.

  11. What a beautiful post, thanks for making me smile. And thank you for your words of encouragement on my blog. I checked out your post on the "secret" of waiting and found your version of waiting to be far more gracious than mine and also very heart (not belly) is indeed growing bigger everyday!
