|I picked some lilacs today, so sweet and lovely, to make a little centerpiece for my Mother's Day table. The kids were here and most of the grandkids. What a beautiful day.|
I've done lots of things in my life but I think parenting is the most challenging job on earth. It would probably be helpful if all new moms had to take some kind of required parenting classes that teach the basics; the stages of children's development, how to nourish their spirits, encourage them to become confident adults. Considering how important this job is, and how inexperienced we are when we begin the parenting journey, there's not much hands-on guidance out there (although there are books and now online resources to check out).

The phrase "I wish I knew then what I know now" was probably coined by a mother looking back.
That's what we wish for our kids on Mother's Day, too, and every day, year after year.
