Mushy kisses and Mother's Day wishes

As an ode to all of the amazing moms out there, I wanted to share a very sweet moment from a class last week. To set the scene, we had been talking about how each of us has a "little light" inside of us (our hearts). I shared how our little lights make each of us special and how bright they shine...especially when we feel love. 

This led us to our Talking Stick circle topic...

Me: "When does your little light shine really bright?" 

The kids all start pointing to their hearts and I hear lots of super sweet responses. "When my family goes on vacation." "When I play with my friends." "When I help someone." 

And then, "Miss Ali, I love mushy kisses. My mom gives me shmushy, mushy kisses and I don't ever want her to stop." 

No filter, pure honesty, and right off the bat. Shmushy, MUSHY, kisses from Mom. I honestly had to hold back the mom-tears because it was said with such confidence and love. 

Happy Mother's Day, my friends. I hope your day is filled with many moments that make your own little lights shine bright.
