Todays Baby shower reminded me of what an exciting time it was when I was expecting and when my babies were born. I loved being pregnant- I loved all the new things I learned- I loved the way that at the very moment my babies were born, I just sort of knew what to do. I felt like I had known them forever and was just amazed at how natural it felt for them to be in my arms. At the very moment they were born, my life took on a whole new meaning, well really, I felt that way even from the moment I discovered I was pregnant. My life would never be the same! I had found my meaning for life, I knew I had found my place in this world-Mom!
I am still absolutely carried away with motherhood; I just think its the grandest thing. I'm so thankful that I was able to conceive and birth my two children, and that although it wasn't always easy, I have been blessed to be a full time mother most of the time since they were born. The short times I did work were really a "grass is greener on the other side" moment for me I guess, thinking I had to help out! But my place has always been at home-just an old fashioned momma loving and training my wonderfully and fearfully made children. Thank you God for Noelle JoBeth and Cale Scot. Thank you for the precious memories that will forever be branded upon my heart and in my mind.
