On April, 6, 1990 I became a wife and a mother. You both drew out of me a love and compassion I never knew existed. Feeling a sense of responsibility for your lives was both the scariest thing on earth and the greatest honor. Thank you for your patience and grace as I walked the path of parenthood for the first time. Over the years the Lord has truly blended our hearts into one of the greatest families in existence. Because of you, motherhood is one of my greatest joys in life.
I remember being a little girl imagining what my children would be like someday. Would I have all girls, all boys, or both. What would they look like? What should I name them? God totally exceeded my dreams and blew my mind in giving me both of you. From the last push in labor to the moment I held you both in my arms, my heart was captivated.
My little princess and God's special surprise, I cannot imagine life without you. You are the tie breaker, and you keep me young with your passion and zeal for life.
All of you are truly special to me in your own individual way and my life would not be the same without all of you in it. Every season, is full of exuberant joy, unforgettable moments and eternal imprints burned in my heart. Through the years, you all have helped me to grow, stretch and arise. Every time I hear any one of you say the word "Mom" my heart is overwhelmed. "MOM" means nurturer, guardian, teacher, care taker,life coach, mentor, and GIVER OF LIFE. What an incredible responsibility to lead and love 5 of the greatest human beings in the world.
Although I could go on and on, this Valentine's Day, I just want you to know that I love you Ferociously!
