"I have learned....
That having a child fall asleep in your arms is one
of the most peaceful feelings in the world."


Remember the other day when I mentioned how I reunited with an “old friend” of mine? My beloved poetry and quote books. Well, I have been going through them with such fervor and loving every second of it! Today I stumbled upon a poem that I remembered had such a profound impact on me the first time I read it years ago. It was yet another “reminder” about certain things in my life that I need to take a closer look at. I have posted this poem called “Life Lessons” in my Get Inspired sidebar (at the right). Please take the time to click on Mama Hen’s Inspirations and read it. It is the first poem. It is a definite keeper and one that I know “everyone” will get something out of.

Reading it made me think about the things “I have learned” so far in my thirty-nine years of life. To begin with, God has thrown quite a few painful life lessons in my past years and I have truly learned that we need to pick ourselves up no matter what and move on no matter how hard it may be. I have also learned that as much as we plan for things, we better be prepared for detours and bumps along the way. I have learned that no matter how hard we try to obtain something, God has the ultimate plan for us and we need to be patient and trust in Him. I have learned that perhaps His plan is completely different then my own. AND finally, I have learned that His plan is by far much greater then what I had envisioned.

As I wrote about in my “About Mama Hen” page, I waited a very VERY long time for Little Chick and went through quite a bit before she got here. I am so pleased to be able to share our special stories with you! I know I keep saying it, but she truly is the greatest blessing in my life!
