#shareitsaturday / Being a Mother of Kids Who Can Die

the daily Starr share it saturday

This post from Ann Voskamp hit home for me today.

The shadow of death is a strange friend: it wakes you to savouring life and every minute. Sometimes I find myself memorizing my children’s faces, the way their eyes look when they turn and catch the light, the way their laugh sounds down the hallway.

A mother memorizes her children to know more of grace by heart.

– Ann Voskamp

Yes. Yes. Yes.

Ann knows how to speak directly into my heart. I want to know grace. I want to know love through my children like I’ve never known. And oh how I want to savor life and every single moment I’m given with them – the hard ones, the fun ones and all the ones in-between.

Here’s to savoring the moments together this weekend, friends.
