Important lessons from a toddler

Being a mother has taught me so much about myself. It has opened my eyes to the simple pleasures that life has to offer. But, the most important things I have learned have come from my sweet little boy!
  1. All of God's creations are marvelous and deserve our full admiration.
  2. That God hears even the quietest uttered prayer.
  3. Love is meant to be expressed several times a day.
  4. Joy can be found in everything if we are willing and ready to see it!
  5. Each new day holds wonder and adventure!
Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed by my job as motherhood and then there are these moments where I feel like Heavenly Father is tapping me on the shoulder, bidding me to stop and learn from his humblest of servants! I am so grateful to be a mom!

P.S. The rain gear for my girls was from Old Navy last season. :)

You are an inspiration to me. Having a toddler definitely makes life seem so simple and helps me to remember the little things in life. I miss you and hope things are going well for you!
