Oh my heart

This morning I sat with Elaine on the couch while I read my Bible. She had just stumbled out of bed and wanted a warm place to finish waking up. I had my arm around her. After a bit she moved and put her head on my chest. She was still for a while, then whispered, "I hear your heart, Mommy." I smiled and hugged her.

Then she moved slightly so that her chest was pressed up against mine and said, "Now our hearts are together."

“Making the decision to have a child - it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ”

- Elizabeth Stone (Thank you, Carrie, for letting me know whose quote this is!)


  1. I believe it was Elizabeth Stone.

    For some reason I am not getting e-mails of my blog comments. I just wanted to thank you for the link you gave me the other day. I ordered one of the books and am hoping I can do the program. The problem sounds like what I face daily.
