  LISTEN BY CLICKING BELOW: If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it (or at least thought it) a thousand times. This motherhood gig is hard. It’s tiring and trying. It’s long days and sometimes longer nights. It’s worry-filled as much as it’s wonder-ful. There are times when the weight of it comes to bear. And there…

    Love this so much! I’m sitting on my virtual porch with you, coffee in hand! Thank you for sharing and spreading God’s grace and love.

    Thanks for your heart felt words. I can’t call my mom anymore or share with her my fears or happy times. But I try to remember she was always there for me. She still is, she just doesn’t remember as well. Happy Mothers Day!ReplyCancel

      I’m sorry I didn’t reply to you sooner, Marilyn! Thank you for reading. I’m sorry your mom isn’t “present” anymore, that has to be so hard. Thank goodness for the good memories. <3 I hope you had a beautiful Mother's Day! xoxoReplyCancel

    Loved this, Meredith.  Yes to giving ourselves and others the gift of grace. 🙂 My own lovely mom is aging, so I realize I won’t have her forever, but years ago, God spoke to me that it was my time to step up to the plate and be a mom to others. Grace to you, friend.ReplyCancel

I wrote these words last fall over here, but I needed them today and I want them in this space…maybe someone else needs them, too. Listen By Clicking Below: It’s harvest time on the farm – and it’s been a long time coming. The preparation has seemed to be as never-ending as the ninety degree…
