When I was a little girl, my mother had a picture frame hanging in her bedroom with a particular saying that I absolutely loved. When Roland was born, I asked her if she still had it; she searched the house and was unable to find it. This Christmas, I was completely surprised when she presented it to me!
As I thought about the saying as a new mother, it helped to ground me, and realize that being perfect or attempting to be perfect at everything wasn't necessarily my most important task - learning to slow down and cherish the special moments in life with my new family was. I now have a visual daily reminder for when life gets chaotic and the small things start to take over.
I hope you enjoy this saying as much as I do!
