because of her.

wow...she is going to be 10 next weekend. kind of a wake-up call, i suppose. just a few thoughts...

  • because of her...i am celebrated on Mother's Day.
  • i know every word to every Jonas Brothers song recorded.
  • i enjoy the game of soccer.
  • my life is sometimes crazy...and other times perfectly calm.
  • i smile at the little things.
  • i am just a little more careful about everything i do.
  • my protective mode slips into high gear.
  • i look at her face and think, 'there is nobody quite so beautiful'.
  • i am aware that the best parts of both Mike & i made it into her little body.
  • my heart fills with pride on so many occasions.
  • i began this crazy hobby.
  • i understand that while bad days come & go, the good ones stay with you forever.
  • i am reminded that no job is quite as fulfilling as being her mama...and there is no greater praise than 'Mom, you're the best.'
  • i have seen heartache from a different perspective...refer back to the protective mode comment, lol.
  • my hair is just a bit greyer...and there are a few more 'worry lines' on my face.
  • i have these beautiful flowers to look at for the next couple of days...


love you my sweet girl...because of you, i am complete.
