Loving the Little Years

Today, I’d like to share a book I’ve read recently: Loving the Little Years: Motherhood in the Trenches by Rachel Jankovic. This is a wonderful little book written with the purpose of encouraging mothers of young children and empowering them to love every minute of the few years they have with their little ones. Here’s an excerpt from the book:

“Motherhood is hard work. It is repetitive and often times menial. Accept it. Rejoice in it. This is your toil. Right here. Those are their faces. Enjoy them. The days of your life are supposed to be full of things like this. But joy is not giddy. It is not an emotional rush – it is what happens when you accept your lot and rejoice in your toil. So rejoice in your children. Look them in the eyes and give thanks.”

I learned a lot from this book and thought you might too. It’s a short read (I finished it completely in an hour) and is very practical. The author had 5 children under the age of 6 at the time of writing and recently gave birth to another. She knows what she’s talking about. If you’re interested, here’s the link to the book on Amazon:
