Bigger Picture Moments: Featuring {Danielle}

Every Thursday, we come together to share the harvest of intentional living by capturing a glimpse of the Bigger Picture through a simple moment. And this month, February, we’re adding a little twist — LOVE.  Won’t you join us?  Reflect upon something simple but lovely: a memory, a proposal, a falling, a feeling, a connection.

Let’s show LOVE this February in our Bigger Picture Moments!

Here’s a glimpse at one of our favorites from last week, shared by Danielle at Sugar and Snails.  Click over to read the rest!

There was an epic diaper blowout in the morning and vomit at the dinner table.

And in between, I felt a tender moment.

It happened somewhere between my efforts at feeling like a confident mother as I strolled my slightly feverish 2-year-old (wearing only a shirt and diaper) through errands and fending off dry heaves while being sprinkled with spit-up.

Oh, right, the moment. It was this:

I got to hold my baby, who really isn’t one anymore, while he sank into my shoulder, grew heavy and fell asleep.

This week’s link-up is being hosted by Alita.  Please head over to share your moment and encourage others as we express our lives in the simplicty — the complex simplicity — of an everyday moment.

We can’t WAIT to discover your moments!

Bigger Picture Moments: Alita’s Bowling Hearts

Every Thursday we come together to share the harvest of intentional living by capturing a glimpse of the bigger picture through a simple moment. Won’t you join us?

Simple BPM

In November we are serving our moments up with a main course of Gratitude.

I am a mom blogger. Not necessarily a mom blogger, but definitely a mom blogger.
Am I even making sense? Anyway, I shy away from posting about bowling trips or field trips. I hesitate about sharing anecdotes about family traditions or first annual anythings.

But sometimes- Just sometimes- I regret not sharing moments like the other kind of mom-blogging.

And this is so very different.

So bear with me, the content of this post is a sensitive subject around here.
