I never imagined in a million years that I would love motherhood as much as I do.
Yesterday I paused to reflect on some of my greatest blessings...
...my own mother...for teaching me, by way of example, what it means to love someone unconditionally.
...my husband for loving me and for assuring me two years ago that I would be a great mother despite all my insecurities.
...my baby girl...for being my first precious child...the one who quickly shaped me into a mother overnight!
...my baby boy...for having the sweetest little soul and for fitting so perfectly into our slightly chaotic world. (and for teaching me how to nurse..woo hooo!)
...and most importantly, for God and His grace...for giving me so much more than I deserve.

Thanks for posting these---I shared them with everyone on my computer list!!!!!!!!!! They are gorgeous and we all are truly blessed----thanks also for the compliment---motherhood is the hardest job , but also the most fulfilling!! I put on my e mail—these are the two little “lights of my life”. You and Tommy are the two BIG “ lights of my life”!
