Mother letters......



I have just run across a most awesome blog. There is a man who is going to surprise his wife with a book of letters sent to her ,via his blog,from other moms. It all started when they decided to forgo giving each other bought gifts this year and using that money to help friends in a village far away. You can read all about it and even send her your thoughts on being a mom. I hope she knows how blessed she is to have a husband do such a loving, most romantic act of gift giving.
The blog address is http://motherletter.blogspot.com/
All moms need encouragement from time to time. To get that from other moms is probably the only way to really be understood in this club we call MOTHERHOOD.
I am seeing what an impact this gift is having on other moms,just read some of the entries that have been sent.
Through just one families idea to sacrifice and bless others, a gift was born that will go on giving to a world called motherhood.

Karen,

"I don't want my son to tell the friend he's
bringing home from college for Thanksgiving, 'My mom gets up at 4 in the morning and bakes homemade pies, and then she hand bastes a turkey for three hours and presses all the linens for the table.' That would mean I'd built a shrine or a monument to myself. I just want him to want to come home. And then, if there is anything more to say to his friend, to add, 'You're gonna love it there.'"

That is seriously good. Thank you so much for your contribution.

I just read your letter and had to pop over to say that it just moved me so much.
You write so beautifully.
