Welcome to Slow down Mummy.

What can I say? I am overwhelmed, I can not really take in the level of support that I have had from writing this poem, 'Slow down Mummy.' I wrote it after having a busy day with the girls, who are now aged 9, 6 and 23months. I like to keep our home clean and organised and one day, I just felt gently convicted that there were more important things to be doing that day. I sat down and wrote this poem. I wrote it for myself initially, just as a reminder to slow down at times, enjoy the present moment, to stop looking ahead at the next task and goal. If we don't appreciate what is right before us , when it is there, then we may miss many a precious moment.

I certainly was not suggesting that we throw in the towel and live unkempt lives ;-) but to try and prioritise our time, making sure that we have time to snuggle, laugh, read, love, listen, encourage, know our children. I am so very thankful for the enormous feedback from Mothers all over the world who connected to the poem and it's words. I never intended for it to spread this way, It was published last year in a book named 'Musings on Motherhood' and I may re publish it again due to it's success. Lots of Mothers have expressed a desire to have it in a print format, So I am looking into this. Bless you all and once again, Thank-you Rebekah ♥
