Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Lullabies for Mothers

One of the loveliest moments of motherhood is that quiet hour after dark when no one is awake but mother and child. Do you remember those times in the dark, wee hours, when you cuddled your sweet  baby in your arms and sang softly in time to the squeak of the old rocking chair? No matter the quality of a mother's voice; when she sings her child to sleep, her voice is as sweet as the angels...and her child as lovely as a cherub. Nightime feedings are holy moments...times when bonds are made forever.

I put together my most recent songlist with this thought in mind. A compilation of lullabies to remind us of those sweet, fleeting moments of motherhood. Turn up your speakers, close your eyes and reminisce.

Lovely. And Debora, no it wasn't this old lady on the beach who made the remark ;) Ha ha. Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Susan, this is precious. I teach my students a Native American lullaby in N A dialect.
