M and Q April Letter{Thank you for checking in on our “Letters to my Children” blog circle! If you are here visiting from Miss Freddy’s blog, welcome! This is a personal project and a way to share my thoughts with my own children.  I will be updating this blog with a letter to one or both of my children monthly. Along with me are several other lovely ladies who are taking on the same project, check out Nikki’s letter and beautiful photos here!}

I have been very busy this month participating in an online course focused on more connected and natural posing, and I am so excited to bring these new skills to our clients! But, in the meantime….my kids have had to be my (mostly) willing subjects! This also means, my time to think up an April letter has been limited…so this month will be short and sweet!


Dearest Quincy and Maisie,


Another month has come and gone, and we all survived (phew!). I admit, my patience has been thin, and it has felt like a particularly difficult month. I just hope that someday we all look back and only remember the good days and moments of joy.  So, this month I share with you a poem I have come across that is a gentle reminder to myself for days when I feel like I have spent  all day covered in baby snot, and cleaning up the kitchen and picking up toys (repeatedly).

A Mother’s Prayer

Oh give me patience when wee hands

Tug at me with their small demands.

And give me gentle and smiling eyes.

Keep my lips from hasty replies.

And let not weariness, confusion or noise

Obscure my vision of life’s fleeting joys.

So when, in years to come my house is still-

No bitter memories its room may fill.

~Author Unknown

I love you both, even when I may seem on the brink of a breakdown. Quincy, you are such a good helper to me when I desperately need it. Thank you! Maisie, you are such a happy girl and show us all such unconditional love (well, mostly…sometimes Quincy gets more “conditional” love than the rest of us.) Watching you explore and enjoy life is one of the things I can count on and appreciate every day! Love you!
