The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
This is one of my most favorite books of all time. I can't say enough about this book. Yesterday I took some time to read it again to my girls. At the end, my second born said, "that's so sad." She couldn't explain why in words, but her heart was heavy. When I asked her if she wanted her life to be like the boy or the tree. She had no words, but I could tell she was thinking. It certainly is a book to make you thoughtful.
My first born said, "Mommy, I want to be the tree." She is the tree...and the boy. Do you know this book? Which are you? The tree or the boy? I want to be the tree, but often, I'm the boy.

A place to find encouragement to love your little ones, your husbands and those you come in contact with daily. Two does not have to be terrible. These are years to grow not simply get through!
