Wisdom from France: A Mother’s Day quote

May 3, 2013

In honor of Mother’s Day, we love this quote by French poet, novelist and playwright, Victor Hugo.  As a mother, nothing is more wonderful than watching your child sleep soundly and peacefully (especially when your child is an infant)! Those moments of stillness provide some quiet time where you can just gaze lovingly at your child’s features and try to imprint them in your memory, knowing that soon those features will change as they grow up.  As a child sleeps you can appreciate their innocence and feel their total trust for you as a mother.  So this Mother’s Day, give yourself the gift of sitting for a moment with your sleeping child.
