We have acted like dorks...alot
We have been fishing and caught... a reed
We are super adorable!
We made precious memories
We all had some really cranky moments
And even felt a little bewildered at times
We celebrated Jakes 3rd Birthday!
And enjoyed the beauty of spring
But the most priceless moment of all is the love we share everyday
These boys are my sunshine, their laughter is contagious and their smiles breathtaking.
One day they will grow up and have smelly feet, hairy faces and their friends will be cooler than me, but for now I'm trying to soak up every priceless moment I can and not take any for granted.
I'm learning how to balance being mommy and everything else I am or want to be,
but trying to focus on being here NOW, and loving my boys with all that is in me,
picking them up when they fall, holding them when they are afraid, telling them silly stories and dancing like a monkey on a daily basis (they looove to dance).
I will try with all that I am to build their character so they can be the men God created them to be, and teach them all I know about the God who loves them endlessly and unconditionally
We may have lost an enormous part of us, but our life is not empty,
Our pain has opened up new opportunities to see God's grace and feel his love and comfort in ways I never imagined
God is my rock, the source of my joy and my strength through each tomorrow
I have more joy than ever before since this journey began and I am thankful for that!
