happy feelings

What is the sweetest feeling in the world?

The feeling of toddler arms wrapped around your neck, a soft cheek snuggled up to yours, and a little warm body pressed up against you as your son hugs you with all the strength in his body.


What is the most thrilling feeling in the world?

The feeling of mixed apprehension and pride as your baby swings himself around to slide off a couch that is higher than he is tall, and lowers himself carefully down, and lands, and stands, and turns to face you with triumph on his face!


What is the happiest feeling in the world?

The feeling of receiving love in the affirming words of your husband, letting you know how much he values the effort you make to parent well, after a hard and emotionally challenging day.


It’s hard not to be grateful and at peace with moments like these in my life, even when circumstances are difficult or frustrating. God has blessed me so richly with the people He’s placed around me!
