Today I received a gift in the mail from a friend who I have made through this blog (that's right, we have never met in person) and was so touched by this gift and the thought behind it. During some precious alone time (while her hubby took her little boy out for a walk), she set out to create a little booklet filled with inspirational quotes on motherhood to send to fellow moms. In addition, she included an unused card and envelope, so that those of us receiving it can pass it onto another set of moms and so on and so forth. A way to brighten and uplift someone’s day, in an unexpected way. And is it not so true that, as moms there are really so many moments when we could use a little reminder of how very important and valued our jobs are not only to our children and family, but to society as a whole? After all, we are raising the next generation of leaders, teachers, scientists, entrepreneurs, doctors, etc, etc that are going to shape how the world looks in the future.
