“The most important thing she’d learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.” – Jill Churchill
The more I slow down, the more of these moments present themselves and the more of the million ways to be a good mother are revealed. What could possibly be better than that?

I love this post! I had a similar moment last night. My 7 year old daughter bought a lovely box of 120 crayola crayons, and I rediscovered the joy of colouring!
By the way, your new space looks lovely! It’s been awhile since I’ve been around.

How apt is that sentiment, perfectly married with your image.
They grow up frighteningly fast and time seems to accelerate with every year that I am a mother. I hope that when my stewardship is over that I don’t look back with too many regrets at time ill spent and moments lost.

Wonderful photo! I love the thought that just slowing down gives you the opportunity to have those moments.
