Being a mom

I've been looking at pictures of my kids when they were little. Tears are rolling down my cheeks. How I loved having my kiddos around me! Each picture takes me back in time. I can smell the smells. I can see the views. I can hear the sounds. I can feel the softness of their skin. I can remember what they were laughing, crying or pouting about.

These memories are etched in my mind forever. And the great thing is, is that memories are still being made everyday. New places, new sounds, new smells, new sights....and I have two little ones that are added to this great picture.

I got on my knees and thanked God for the great blessing of being a mom. I will never take that for granted. I also prayed that I will get to raise Andy someday. I hope I get to see him as a little boy.

I feel such gratitude, like my heart could explode!
