"It was only a sunny smile, and little it cost in the giving, but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living."

 Hello to all of you lovely mamas out there (and moms to be.) Today is your day! 
Take a moment to notice the little things today, the way the sun shines through your window, 
or how the grass feels on your bare toes (it's going to be a beautiful day!) Stop and really listen to what your little one is saying to you...it's so easy to forget sometimes. Look them in the eye when they are talking to you and notice all the love that is there for YOU. Listen to what they are saying, even if it's nothing special or if they are being sassy (especially if they are being sassy ;), hear the love that's in their voice...it's there I promise, and it's for YOU. Remember, and cherish, that it was you that molded your child into the incredible little one/young one/teenager that they are today. You are the most important person in their life, and they couldn't possibly wish for a better mama than YOU. Now, give yourself a pat on the back, you are doing an amazing job! 

Don't shake your head either, you are fabulous. 

Each and every one of you. 

Have a beautiful Mother's Day!


  1. Many smiles and kisses for your Mother's day! I think every day is a mother and dauhter day in your house, and I only wish that every child were met with the same love, interest and sunshine as Sunny.

    Forgive me for not leaving any words for you lately. Edda and I always visit you together, and so I often wait for the right moment. I loved your post 'come rain or shine', those pictures! And, happy birthday to Sunny. If you woud leave me your adress at justlikebirds@gmail.com - Edda has something she'd like to send to Sunny :)

    Lovely Sunday, lovely Mother's day
    Lilli (and Edda)
