Only A Mother’s Love


“When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts.
A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.”

Sophia Loren

As much as we love traveling and being out in the world, we also cherish our cozy, loving & simple home life. My boy is rarely ever ready for school on time because he is playing around the house and just hanging. Mornings are the best. It is so hard to break our rhythm and go about the rest of the day. We wake up, and we go out on the terrace, I enjoying my coffee while the kids eat a little breakfast.HappyKidsWe cuddle…a lot. The kids love cuddling on the couch and watching a movie or laughing at our favorite TV show. My son is an earlier riser, so his cuddles come with my warm cup of coffee, as the sun is rising. My daughter is a night owl, and she loves to cuddle when the boys go to bed. These cuddle times are sweet. It is when I hear the hearts of my kids – how school is going, what they dream about and what they fear the most.

We take leisurely walks to the beach. We listen to music together, and sometimes the kids join in on the song. Honestly, it is usually after I let it go. 😉 We browse through clothing and toy store windows along the center of town while enjoying some gummies or an ice cream cone. And, there are times when we cry together. Life is hard, but in the end, we have each other.SlothKids

We do our thing. It is simple, but it is ours. And, I am grateful to God for these two amazing gifts.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the incredibly courageous, strong and beautiful women!
