A mother's love endures. This small collection of essays embraces the treasured moments and laments the challenging ones during the author's early years as a stay-at-home mother of three. Read them and recall the precious times when your own children were babes in arms.
When her first child was born, the author quit her job to work at home as a full-time wife and stay-at-home mom. Although that action cut the family income in half, the resulting financial struggles were barely a consideration. They made do with one older car, shopped garage sales for clothing and toys, gardened, and cooked homemade meals.
This short collection of essays recaptures the memories of early parenting. It includes writings on the joy of breastfeeding, cutting back on spending, the pleasure found in quiet moments with children, personality differences, parenting challenges, and the awesome mystique of a five-year-old.
Whatever your age, read these essays and recall your own priceless memories.

Loved this! Bite-sized pieces of memories that draw the reader into both the author's remembrances and their own.
The memories written include ones that every mother has stored away and brings them to light in a warm and moving way.
I truly enjoyed this e-book.
