Part Two, Day Eight: Twenty Days Toward More Mindful Mothering

Watching a flower bloom is like watching a child grow in nature….their bodies growing bigger and stronger, developing all of their senses.


A wonderful exercise that I did in my Foundation Studies course was to draw a flower every day, bud stage through the final phases of the petals dropping.  I was drawing tonight and thinking about how our children blossom outside…






Please give your children the gift of being outside – crossing streams on logs, hiking up hills and mountains, over rock and gravel, rolling down grassy hillsides and sitting in meadows and mud.  It is so important.


Have a blessed week,
