I love being a mom!
Most days I am in awe of the blessings I have around me.
It is not an easy journey,
but it is a very rewarding one!
It is not a glamorous job,
but it is a priceless one!
It is never about me,
but it is always about glorifying God.
It is not about waiting to get them out of the house,
but embracing them while they are still in the house.

Who is in my house?

A baby (11 mo)~

a fearless go-getter, with a delightful personality.
A preschooler (4)~
loud & playful, with a creative spirit.
My girl (7)~
precocious & focus-driven, with a tender heart.
A Junior-higher (12)~
sensible & smart, with an amusing humor.
A Highschooler (going on 16)~
an active & skilled athlete, with a touch of charm.
Our man-child whom is 20, does not live w/ us,
but is still an important part of our lives~
hard-working & responsible, with clever dash of kindness.

This particular Mother's Day is very special to me. Not for what my children can do for me, but for what I can do for them. After 20 years of parenting, I am very well aware of each age, personality, challenges, and talents that my children are gifted with. This is the year I am blessed with many childhood stages at once, and will lovingly embrace the moment!
