Mother's Day

Words cannot express what happened to my life and my heart on May 22, 2007 and February 16, 2009... they both were forever changed! I feel blessed beyond measure to be a mother of two of the most beautiful children ever! Some people grew up wanting to be doctors or teachers but I grew up knowing that I wanted to be a mommy and my dreams have been far surpassed!
There are days when exhaustion is an understatement and patience is far from my vocabulary...There are days when I worry so much my brain hurts and days when I dream about just a few quiet moments to myself....
But then there are days when Palmer will say, "I love you too ,mom", or I hear the rip roaring sound of Ann Mason's laugh and I experience those moments when I climb over the crib and curl up next to my children at night to talk about their days....that's when I know that life is sweet and that is when I know that my childhood wish came true... I GET to be a Mom, everyday, each day, good and bad and I feel immensely blessed for all that comes with this enormous job!

Palmer's Birth!

Ann Mason's Birth!
To all of the mother's out there Thank You! Especially to my mother for showing me how to love my children unconditionally! I love you!
