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!

Simple BPM

We have a new plan at Heavenly House for encouraging good behavior.

I KNOW it’s hard to believe, but we do struggle with such boring tasks as doing something the first time mom or dad asks.  We have an even harder time remembering that the tone of voice we use is as important as the words we say.  So, in the line of positive reinforcement when a little girl’s behavior manages to catch up to such lofty expectations as politeness and generosity andthoughtfulness, we have a plan.

Something that’s simpler than a sticker chart and easier to follow through with.  Something that has a pleasing sound attached to it:

To read the rest and to add your own Moment please head over to This Heavenly Life, we’d love to have you!

Live. Capture. Share. Encourage.
