Today I felt compelled to write about something special. It’s a little bit of encouragement for all the tired, weary moms out there in the trenches who need a little boost on a tough day.
This is called Things a Mother Never Forgets. Save these pictures, share them on your Facebook wall, use them however you’d like to jog your memory about what motherhood is really all about – our precious little ones.
Thinking of all the reasons I love these little ones is about the ONLY way I get through my toughest mom days. I hope this encourages other moms as well.

A mother never forgets her baby’s first smile. After weeks and weeks of sleepless nights, we are rewarded with a tiny glimpse of our newborn’s gorgeous smile, and somehow it’s all instantly worth it.
A Mother Never Forgets…Holding Those Tiny Feet in the Palm of Her Hands
I will never forget how little those feet were in my hands. They grow so fast…but start out SO small.

The scent of a newborn baby is unmistakable and one a mother NEVER forgets. We’re done having kids, but I still love it when I can get my hands on a delicious nugget!
A Mother Never Forgets…When All That Little Hand Could Hold is One Finger
Whenever I see a newborn, I’m always surprised at just how little they are. I don’t remember my kids being that little, especially given how rough they are today. But I do remember when all they could hold in their whole hand was one of my fingers.
I guess they really were that little once. 🙂
