A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them.
There is the common motherhood sentiment that time needs to slow down. Time feels like a thief and how does one arrest it, if only to slow it down? So desperate are we to soak up all these moments, to enjoy the time that feels so fleeting.
Just hold them, that is the answer.
In a mother's arms is tenderness and rest, understanding and grace. You will never regret holding your child too much, too often, so close and sweet. Forever you will have the way your child feels in your arms engraved on your heart. So much satisfaction and fulfillment comes from simply embracing all the moments.
Your arms are made of tenderness.
Happiest Mother's Day to you.
