The photo above was taken just minutes after my first child was born, Elijah, in 2004. After 2 years of infertility, aching with empty arms and questioning my faith (in everything!) little Elijah came into our lives all on his own time. My son made me into a mother, and changed forever who I am. 3 years later my princess Nevaeh made my heart swell when I didn’t think it was possible to have more room to love another.
I know I’m not a perfect mom. I know I’m not the best mom. I don’t have all the answers and I don’t know what the future holds. Is our family complete? I don’t know. If it is, then I’ve been doubly blessed. Two little souls think I am the perfect mom. I am the best mom. I have all the answers and I know what’s for breakfast each morning, just like that. It’s a big role to fill but I had a good coach.
Happy mother’s day to my mom (who doesn’t have a computer but I’ll print this for her!) and all the mommies reading. To my friends and readers who have lost their moms know that your mother’s eyes danced when she talked about you, she thought about you late at night, and she considered herself blessed to have had you.
