When the nicer weather rolls in with sunshine and warmth, my little crew and I leave our nest and head for the hills. Literally. I take my role as Mama-the-Memory-Maker seriously after all and I want their childhood to be dotted, as the path is with tiny white petals, with the prettiest glimpses into the great wide somewhere.
Now of course there will be whining, and falls, and way too many potty breaks, but I hope we can all remember the beauty along the way.
Life isn't perfect and motherhood isn't always glamorous. (Have you ever wiped a tiny bottom on the side of a rural trail with a leaf or carried a mud covered child up rocky hills? 🙋) BUT I hope, when they look back at their messy childhood, that they remember all of the naturally radiant and humbling things this world has shown them around every bend. And, I pray, they learn from them. After all, a flower will always look for the light, even if no one is watching. 🌸 (more from our hike in my story for a limited time 😉) Where are your favourite places to visit with your families? Do share! We plan on squeezing every drop of sunshine out of this summer.
