|Andrew has been finding treasures on his woods' walks. He has found THREE owl pellets which he is over the moon about. The boy has eagle eyes in the woods.|
|The amphibian visits have begun- spring finally sprung.|
|Smoothie breakfasts replace scones...another sure sign.|
|fruit trees in bloom! Sooooo exciting!|
Once upon a time, I never would have dreamed of children dissecting owl pellets on my bed and being there, enjoying it all, with them. I never would have known I would admire so many frogs, newts and creatures as I do every week (day!) now. I never would have imagined all the laundry that children produce, how much food can disappear and how quickly, how many reprimands a child requires and how many infinitely more hugs and kisses are necessary for the proper raising of children.
I never would have imagined having so many moments of my life given up for the sake of the people who need me.
It is an exhausting life, this. It is a busy job, motherhood. But it is a spell-binding, wonder-filled, laugh-inducing, beautiful, amazing journey. And so, so, so important.
Happy Mother's Day to all of you Mama's whose daily work it is to make home a haven for those people, big and little, who enter in.
We are world changers....watch out! ;-)
