My boys and I are reading the delightful story of Little Bear by Else Holmelund Minarik and I'm not sure who is loving it more! (not to mention the girls instantly halt their lessons to listen along as well!)
Mother Bear is such a real, loving, playful and beautiful mother that I just enjoy learning from and being encouraged by.
And a reminder that all mother bears also have another side that I equally admire...
FIERCE: A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path. (Agatha Christie)
One of the great balances of life!
