Five-Minute Friday – Cherished

People all over the world blogging on the same topic on the same day for just five minutes and linking up at Lisa Jo’s place. Today’s topic: Cherished.

Five Minute Friday



Luke 2:19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.

Her wonderful giggles.

Her snuggly warm self.

Her tiny tears that I wipe away.

Her whispered stories at bedtime.

I am treasuring these things in my heart. I am cherishing them. I am storing them up and will ponder them for years. Hard to believe I get to be a witness to such wonderful moments. And in the process, I want to always let her know that she is cherished. Completely and utterly cherished by a mom who would do anything for her. Who would move mountains and wipe tears and hug through the hard times and love unconditionally.

When she goes out in the world, I want her to have the absolute solid, immoveable foundation of a mom who totally cherished her. I want her to know that and never question it. I think that is one of the best gifts I can give her. And I pray I will be able to do that for her every day. I pray that she will sense it even when she can’t see me and she will be able to do all her growing up feeling it.

  1. Your post is beautiful…it brought tears to my eyes. As one whose kids are all grown up, I can tell you that it is so important for you to cherish each moment…it truly goes by so fast. There is a song that your post reminded me of…I Get to Be the One by JJ Heller. It is soooo good.
