I love this saying. I have used it often over the last few decades. (Ugh, did I say that??!) With a "little person" as a son, I think it fits just as well for people. A little heart can also hold as much love as a larger one. I am slowly turning my new place into my new home, starting with the bedrooms.
Everywhere my youngest goes he "adapts" to the things around them. Although many items in his room will need to be changed as he is NOT a baby anymore. *Sniff* He loves having things (in his words) "Just my size!" A nightstand cut down for a desk, a small blue dresser he can reach, curtains on rings he can open and close himself. So besides in his room, I have scaled down chairs for him inside and out.
I love the seasonal changes, and as the weather turns cooler, and nights become longer, the flicker of flameless candles add a comforting and safe light he loves. Warm flannel sheets, a cuddly fleece blanket, and quilts smoothed with a mother's loving hands are easy ways to welcome nighttime. I often make chamomile, or "sleepytime" tea as my oldest boys call it, add some honey and serve it in each child's special mug. A simple and inexpensive gesture even my eldest son still loves.
Thank you to my cousin who comes to visit and help me, I appreciate you SO much!! Thank you too for letting me use your camera! It has been AWFUL without one!
