Thy Gentleness Hath Made Me Great

Hello Fellow Moms!

I hope this finds you and your family filled with lots of love and peace! Our lives have been busy with the hustle and bustle of welcoming our first grand-baby. My daughter, Gabrielle, just gave birth to the most incredible little girl in the world! Mommy and baby are doing fine. I had to chuckle when Gabrielle asked "Mom, do all babies stay up all night?". Hee, hee. We have all been there haven't we? And some of us still are!

I want to encourage each and every one of you that you were hand selected by God to be the mommy of your little ones. He knew that there would be no other mother who could meet all of the needs of this little one as perfectly as you do. You two are a perfect fit in God's eyes! Yes, it is not always easy. But remember, a hug and a kiss can heal about anything. When your eyes feel like cotton balls from lack of sleep and your home looks like a wrecking crew just blew in, keep in mind that the only thing they will remember about their childhood is love. They will look back and remember with their heart. I know because I do. My baby just had a baby. What an awakening I have had as a mom. I look back on when my Gabrielle was a little one and I don't just have memories of her childhood.
I feel her childhood with my heart.

Be blessed, ladies. The things that really count in motherhood can be accomplished with the greatest of ease. Your two arms are the only tools necessary to make your child great. Enjoy your babies while they still are!

"...thy gentleness hath made me great." 2 Samuel 22:36
