this month, i'm celebrating motherhood with some sweet words from a few of my favorite people. today my dear heather is here, and as usual, her words are a blessing!
Dear sweet little loves of my life,
As your mama, I am filled to the brim with hopes for each of you; so many that a 500 page book wouldn't be able to contain them all. One of those hopes happens to be that you will let the light God placed in you shine bright for the whole wide world to see. I've had this hope for each of since you were just a dream in my heart, but somewhere along the way a new hope snuck in and snuggled up next to it. I don't know how it happened, but I think you have everything to do with it. You see, now I'm filled with hope that I can let my own light shine for the world to see, too. I think it has something to do with the way you look at me with your beautiful brown eyes that allows me to see the best me I can be. It makes me feel brave and humble all at once, but mostly it makes me feel worthy and that is something I never ever expected.
