There are so many things my kids do that I want to remember - things they say or do that seem so memorable when they happen, but that I forget nearly hours later when trying to retell them to Tim. I've committed to over the years trying to record the cute things that they say in my "overheard" posts - my "Treasured and Pondered" posts are going to be for things that aren't necessarily overheard but are done and that I want to look back and remember well.
The title comes from Luke 2:19 "But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart."
My children are one of the greatest treasures the Lord has blessed us with and I want to reflect on who they are and what they do and remember these moments - the moments that make my heart stop - forever.

I pray this will always be the message she write with her life.
