Togetherness. Resiliency. Safe Places.



Charlotte Mason:

"All the time, too, the children are storing up memories of a happy childhood...In this time of extraordinary pressure, educational and social, perhaps a mother's first duty to her children is to secure for them a quiet growing time...And this, not for the gain in bodily health alone - [but also the nourishment of] body and soul, heart and mind...

...and think what a delightful possession for old age and middle life is a series of pictures imaged, feature by feature, in the sunny glow of a child's mind! The miserable thing about the childish recollections of most persons is that they are blurred, distorted, incomplete, no more pleasant to look upon than a fractured cup or a torn garment; and the reason is, not that the old scenes are forgotten, but that they were never fully seen."

It's never too late to begin to learn to see.
