My Little Flowers


April 18, 2012 by themommahen


I’m no Ann Geddes, but I know someday I’ll look back on these pictures and smile.


Like tomorrow.


Or 10 years from now. Gah! Ten years will fly by. Just look at the last 10. So for now, I will contiue my mantra of living in the moment. (Which, believe me, I aspire to do this, as I don’t always achieve it.)


Today is here.

I will enjoy it.


Tomorrow will come.

I will savor it.


Along with the seeds

I sow.


And the inevitable weeds,



and droughts.


Because love

When planted

Grows love


My harvest

is plentiful

and good.

    Love love love this, from the photos to the sentiment. (My little guy is in your neck of the woods this week – his first trip to NC without his mama. Feels like a milestone, for sure.) xo

Walking in the snow So beautiful. But please let the power stay on. Morning chicken duty is always more fun when snow is falling. A little cold today. #brrr #beach I'm gonna Momma Hen you all for a minute with a gentle reminder that giving kids access to social media accounts -- whether theirs or yours, whether they're "old enough" or not -- without any guidance or oversight is not so different from letting your kid drive a car on the highway without any training. The damage may not be physical, and with a little luck there wont be any damage at all, but...images seen cannot be unseen, words said cannot be unsaid, things heard cannot be unheard. Birthdays are meant to be celebrated, even when it's back to school after an extended break. #12
