Let us all face it.... just like our own child in the candy isle of HyVee.... we all LOVE a little treat from time to time!

At least I do!  God has taught me the beauty of contentment, so I have learned to accept the times when that "treat" I am eyeing, may just not be financially possible.  This has changed my life in so many ways.  

  • It has kept us out of major debt!
  • It has given me a love for the simple things in life!
  • It has grown me in other areas such as; frugalness and homemaking skills.
  • It has given me a peace like I had never known before.
  • It has given me huge appreciation for the times I am able to purchase the BIGGER treats!

That is just to name a few! 

 There is no greater peace to be found.... than in a heart... that has found contentment.

I have been creating my own drama and suffering for so long that like a fish that is oblivious to the water that surrounds it, I am often oblivious to the times when I create pain in my life. Mindful Mothering is so not about being oblivious.
