When searching around for quotes for your free printable this month, this old American Proverb really spoke to me right now. I am a worry wart. I mean seriously, I worry about my kiddos all…the…time! My boys are 12 and 15, which I truly can’t believe. I have a slide show of their itty bitty baby faces looking at me from my computer screen daily. I absolutely cannot fathom that from those itty bitty babies I now have a spunky pre-teen and a ginormous teenager. How on earth did that happen???
When our oldest was born we had nursing issues. He was so tiny and sad because he was hungry. It just broke my heart. We spent weeks going daily back and forth to the next town to the lactation consultant. It took 3 months, but we finally got the hang of it.
In those early days I was so worried about him gaining weight and growing. Now he’s over 6 feet tall, taller than his daddy, and still growing. He can polish off a 3 pound pot roast and a couple of pounds of carrots if we let him. Oh my word. So in the middle of it, we were terrified and worried constantly…but now from his small beginnings, he has definitely grown and blossomed into a wonderful young man doing great things. He’s studying for his driver’s test (what?!?!?) and has become an awesome farmer and wood turner. So even in the midst of the worry, no matter how tiny your little one is…just know that great things will come from her small beginnings!!
So here’s a big old hug to you, mama! We are totally in this together. Every age brings a new “small beginning” and in the end, great things will certainly abound! So print it out and hang it in her nursery or big girl room. ♥
