A delightful, inspiring compilation for all mothers to read and remember the joys of motherhood even through the trying times.
A Mother’s Book of Blessings is a fun and delightful gathering of stories, poems, psalms, and quote’s about what it means to be a mother. With each writing comes a beautiful piece of art to illustrate the journey as well. There are classics that we have all heard as well as new bits of wisdom sprinkled throughout. The topics covered throughout include, Mealtimes, Bedtimes, Holidays, Birthdays, New Moms, Weddings, Gratitude and so much more that will celebrate the moments big and small throughout a mother’s life.
These books are always enjoyable to look back at after becoming a mom. So many times we get wrapped up in the busyness of our day-to-day activities that we forget to enjoy the little moments that mean so very much. Several of the quote’s I had heard and read before but a few were new and very inspiring. The art was very generic and leaves a lot to be desired as far as diversity goes. While the art is not very diverse, the writings are from a nice mixture of sources including Christian writings, Native American, Jewish, Muslim, Irish and even good old Dr. Seuss. This is a great gift for a new mother or even for grandmothers who will enjoy sitting and reminiscing about all the good times they have had with their loved ones. Book collectors will also enjoy adding this to their collection for the quotes and pictures throughout. With the broad range of topics covered, there is something inside for everyone to enjoy and be able to take away a little nugget of wisdom to help brighten their day.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
