I have been so busy the last couple days that I haven't been present here on my blog. Sorry about that! Today is my last busy day and so I'll be back to regular blogging tomorrow, but I just had to stop by quickly and share something with you.
Just before bed last night I was able to read a few pages of Anne of Ingleside. Anne is one of my most favorite characters in the world of literature and I've read all of the books more times than I can count throughout my life. But as I've become a mother, I have a newfound love for the later books in which Anne herself is a mother.
One of Anne's thoughts especially stood out to me as I laid in bed so tired from and especially busy day of being a wife and mama.
Mothers were the same all through the centuries...a great sisterhood of love and service...the remembered and the unremembered alike. [Anne of Ingleside, p 155]
I love being a mother to my beautiful, sweet boy so very much and wouldn't trade it for the world. And I also love being part of that 'great sisterhood' that Anne speaks of - all the other mothers out there in all the stages of motherhood who inspire me and encourage me. Thank you to all you great mama's out there who have supported and encouraged me along the way in my own mothering journey. You are amazing!
