Once There Was a Mom

Today I received a surprise in the mail: a children’s book! Someone who loves me (I still haven’t found out who sent it yet) must have known I would love this book–and I do!

I can’t wait to thank them!

Once There Was a Mom is akin to Five Minutes’ Peace, in that it is a book both for children AND adults. It is comforting to the mother to read it and empathy-enlarging for others.

The story tells about how a woman became a mother and discusses what she loves about being a mother, what she worries about in being a mother, and an epiphany she had when worrying about how much of an impact she is making as a mother. It is comforting to read. (I don’t want to give away the ending!)

It is definitely a new favorite.

My heart beats with happiness thinking of this surprise!
