I have this Mom and Me Journal I started around the time my girl was born. There are some deeply moving sentiments in here from the early days of Motherhood. I am so glad I wrote these, although they were sporadic. They capture my emotions. The tenderness of new mom-ness still dripping from my heart and pen right onto the paper.
These are beautiful snippets and attempts at sharing scripture and my heart with my girl. I had planned on giving this to her when she was older. But I stopped around the time she was two, so I am not sure what I will do about it, yet. Perhaps for her 12th Birthday. Still unsure whether to add or embellish otherwise.
I also may share this in more detail in the future as a DIY project for new Moms.
This was one of the shorter entries, and not devotional in nature.
I think it makes for a fun, light share for a smile today!

Here we are at church!
"Auntie" Sandy bought you the beautiful
purple dress and hat
which you proceeded to kick off
Actually on this blessed day "Auntie Sara"
locked the keys in the car so we got to hang out in the chapel
a bit until Triple A came and unlocked us.
God is good- all the time!
A couple of notes:
*I am an only child but God has provided me with
wonderful Sisters In Christ to fill in as Aunties.
*I was living far from my home church at the time and it was difficult
to get there and back at times,
so hanging out longer was a blessing indeed- more time for fellowship!
* God really is good all the time, Amen?
His ways are not our ways and that is good.
