Since I became a mother I could only start to understand the capacity and vulnerability of a mother’s heart, how much love it can hold while at the same time break into many pieces. Continue reading Letter to my mother
If you know my history with cars you will understand my reference to my big white car. We had to take our big white car in for repairs. The radiator had a hole in and I had to check the temperature often to make sure it is not overheating when I drive.
I dropped off my husband at the radiator garage and drove back alone in our old green car (not as old as the big white car but still about 17 years old).
As I drove through the city there were cars everywhere… taxis and people walking, definitely not a place I feel safe driving alone. At one traffic light a police man came to me, I opened the window and he told me the car was overheating… and then I saw the red light on the dashboard and the steam coming from the engine!
Last weekend I had a perfect weekend. I might add “at home”, as our other recent perfect weekend was the weekend we took our baby away for the first time.
Our perfect weekend was busy, but started with a relaxed Friday afternoon. On Friday my husband finished early at work so we picked our baby up together and went for a walk in the park.
It is the same park where we watched numerous sunsets together. It is also where my husband proposed many years ago.
I read many books during my pregnancy to prepare me for motherhood, and realized quickly that the books can’t teach you everything. The more you read the more confused you get.
The big learning starts once your little one arrives.
This is what my baby taught me in his first 12 months. Continue reading Six things my baby taught me
October is one of the most beautiful months and went by very quickly.
We experienced some things for the first time in October in our everyday life. We took our baby on his first vacation, he had his first haircut and went to his first swimming lesson.
I had my first time-out and attended a mommy-morning.
I decided to give some more information about my husband. You can read more about it here.
My dear child
I created the heavens and earth. I sent My Word and it was done. I put Adam and Eve on it to have a relationship with me. Throughout the years my people has come to me, and turned away. They repented and turned away again… so many times have I forgiven them. I sent My Son to pay the prize and it was done. Jesus paid the ultimate prize because I love you.
Even before I created the earth I designed you. I planned every part of you; I planned you to be unique.
I rejoice over you and want to spend time with you. I know you don’t always know what to do or say, but I want you to rest in Me. I want to be part of your life; I want to be part of every part of your life. I want to greet you when you wake up and I want to put you to bed. I want to help you in your challenges and I want to rejoice with you over victories. I want to hold you when you are alone and give you strength when you are weak.
