After 5 years of being a stay-at-home mom, I found the wonder of mothering slowly starting to get crowded out by the mundane feeling. I realized our world seems to surround people with the negative, and complaining about blessings seems totally acceptable. So I decided to fight against that "normalcy" and focus only on the positive. I look back to my first year as a mom when everything was new and keeping house was fun and I aim to have that attitude again. This blog is my outlet to showcase the daily miracles that surround me in my blessed life as a stay-at-home mom so that I will never forget the wonder of it all.

There is Love Here

I was planning on getting on here tonight and sharing with you how long my week has been, how little Arrow has slept, how overwhelmed I feel, and how this transition from 3 to 4 children has really caught me off guard and thrown me.  But then I started uploading images from the last few days...........................

..................and I paused...........

..........and I looked at the beautiful faces of my children, smiling with pure delight, and all I see is joy, and all I feel is love.

There is love here.
Oh, Lord, PLEASE help my children to feel it, despite me.


  1. They do feel it, Jen. And they will continue to feel it. You are the embodiment of love and though you aren't perfect, your consistent presence will steady and encourage them all their lives.

  2. I just had a fourth baby join our family and that's my prayer, too. :)

  3. I certainly feel the love! They do too! It's so hard as Mom's to manage our hormones at times. Oh their sweet faces! I just love how the older ones want to include baby in play too - it's a beautiful thing!
    Jenny, I totally struggle with the same thing. One minute I'm savoring a moment, an expression, a I'm crying to Jesus to help me!
