I'm the mom of 3. For the sake of their privacy I'll refer to my children by their initials (I'm a big fan of those, too). M, my oldest daughter, is 7. She now shares a room (more on that later) with her younger sister, C, who is 4. And last, but far from least, is little L, and he's 2.

You'll be hearing a lot more about them in the upcoming weeks, but for now, I want to share a little inspire that I created with my ladies in mind. 

M and C are 2.5 years apart, but C is the same size as M and expects herself to dance, read, draw, and exist just as a 7-year old would. 

Comparison is tough on us. I find that I'm as guilty of it as anyone, and to see comparison struggles frustrate the wonder of a 4-year old, well, it breaks your heart open.

I'm inspired by powerful words from great people. Thanks to gifts like Pinterest I can collect words and images combined beautifully through graphic design.

Fifth & Hazel has some gorgeous work -- free and downloadable -- that I totally appreciate and admire, like this one. If you have not visited her blog, read this entire post (pretty, please) and then go over and check out all her stunning designs at Fifth & Hazel.

Inspired by her gifting, I created this print from the words of St. Therese of Lisieux for my little girls. M and C aren't quite old enough to fully understand the strength of the message, but they understand the preciousness of a violet and the presence of a rose. And I'm hoping they grow to understand the amazing, unique personalities they both are.

Pass this along to anyone you know who might want a little inspire today!
