A friend loaned me a book that I’ve been soaking in for the past month. I’ve never read a book that so accurately described the emotional realities of motherhood as Katrina Kenison’s book, The Gift of An Ordinary Day.

You won’t find this on the Christian bookstore shelves, and I don’t recommend it from a faith perspective at all, but her words from a mothering perspective are right on. In fact, I’ve never read such smooth, accurate, and heart-touching descriptions of the seasons of motherhood.

I found a You Tube video of the author reading an excerpt from her book that I want to share with you. Take a few minutes…I think you’ll be able to relate…especially if your kids are teenagers. For those of you with little ones, Katrina’s words are a reminder of how short the season of small children really is.
