my trophies

My work as a mother doesn't fill my bank account or my resume, but it does fill my heart (and lots of spare cups and jars)This is my quote always sums up for me the essence of motherhood.

"We must not drift away from humble works, because these are the works nobody will do. It is never too small. We are so small we look at things in a small way. But God almighty sees everything great. Therefore if you just go and sit and listen- go visit somebody, or bring somebody a flower- small things, wash clothes for somebody, or clean the house, very humble work. That is where you and I must be. For there are many people who can do big things. But there are very few who will do the small things.” Mother Teresa
