If you are expecting this site to show a person whose house is spotless, with homemade meals and desert made from scratch on the table every night, the laundry always caught up, my kid always acting perfect and handmade gifts given for every holiday, then you’ve landed on the wrong site.

If you are NOT like the person mentioned above and you want to come hang out with someone who isn’t a Supermom either, then you’ve come to the right place.

I Recommend: The Gift of An Ordinary Day

I must recommend watching this little piece of video where the author Katrina Kenison is reading an excerpt from her book The Gift of an Ordinary Day. I like this website and I am so glad they shared this with us, so I am sharing it with you. You can see the video here:

Hearts at Home : What I've Been Reading

It brought tears to my eyes and made me hug my little boy so tightly. As I silently fear that future of letting go, it reminded me of how I need to cherish every moment now.

If you have small children, it reminds you of what lies ahead and reminds you to enjoy each day they need you as they will need you less and less as the days go on.

If you have teenagers, it reminds you to enjoy the few times they still need you and to enjoy your children's transformations.

If you have grown children, it reminds you to enjoy watching your children become parents and how you can once again hold little ones. You enjoy it when your children come to you once again for advice and questions. They still need you after all.

I think I'm going to get the book, The Gift of An Ordinary Day. I think it may be $10 well spent for the reminder of the gifts we have.
