There were five days in my life that forever changed and defined me:
I became a Mom over 19 years ago...the day Sierra's heart started beating within my body. I learned a new meaning of the word "love" that day and I discovered for myself that a Mother's love is immeasurable...it truly knows no bounds. With every passing day, my love grew deeper and stronger...and with each child, it multiplied. Everyone who knows me know that my children are my everything: my sunshine, my strength, my purpose, my passion and my treasures. The joy they bring me on a daily basis can not be defined.
This was taken on the day that my family became complete:
I read a book to Kassia this week called, "I Love You the Purplest". It's all about how a mother loves her children differently, but the same. I could relate on so many levels...as I love each of my children differently, but equally.
It never ceases to amaze me how 5 children from the same Mom can be so very different from each other. I see a lot of myself in each of them, and I am thoroughly enjoying watching them each blossom in their own unique ways. I thank God every day for entrusting me with life's most precious of gifts.
Wishing you all a very Happy Mother's Day. May your day be filled with hugs, homemade cards, heartfelt words and lots of love.
