I know, I know. The quiet moments for a mom are often ones that bring you to find markers on the walls, flour on the floor or a toddler stuck in a kitchen cupboard doing who knows what.
The quiet moments...the ones where you are snuggled up or going for a walk hand in hand. Those are the ones that often bring the biggest lessons.
Having a quiet moment with your child every day slows everything down. Nothing matters outside of what you are doing right then and there.
Listen to one anothers breath.
Make a mountain out of the couch cushions and tell stories under the blankets
Find the lessons that you need in your child. It's funny; they often have a way of letting us know or teaching us when we are seeking answers. When we are doubting our path or our abilities as a parent.
They let us know
They provide an anchor to our soul
