As I reflect....

Above: Kennedy at 3 months

Below: Landon at 3 months

This week has been one of those weeks that you reflect on your life. I have been privileged to mother two precious children and be married to a man that gives me continued peace and laughter. Mothers Day means so much more now than it has ever before. I realize that it's a time to give thanks for the mothers in our lives and truly appreciate all that they are to us. However, for me it's also a time that I give thanks for the opportunity to be a mom. Ten years ago, life was different. My value was not in the things that really matter. I had my share of trials and mishaps, but deep down I always wanted more. I dreamed of the family I would eventually have and the partner that would sweep me off my feet one day. My intent is not to boast about what I have and where I am today. My intent is to give thanks for the children God has given me and the husband that surrounds me with his love. Thank you Kennedy and Landon for the life you bring to my days!

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh

Being a mother is such a blessing!
By the way- Luke LOVES your website- everyday he want to watch the video with Ben and him- then he goes "ennedy"- and wants to see pictures of Kennedy. I think he has a crush!

I also wanted to share this quote- it is one of my favorites:
"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body...."
