I'll never forget January 31, 2001. The day I welcomed my beautiful, Emily Claire. In many ways her birth day was far from the "fairy tale" I had always imagined. In fact, it proved to be one of the longest, most difficult days of my life. But when I finally saw my precious 5 pound 4 oz girl, it was LOVE! She is the most precious gift I have ever received.
I'll be honest and say that these past 11 years of mothering have been HARD. Some days it's not all roses...in fact usually the flowers I get are hand-picked straight from the back yard: dandelions! But let me tell you that when your little girl comes with a twinkle in her eye, a big (at times toothless) smile, a simple "weed" from your yard has never been so gorgeous!
Each season we have gone through has had challenges, but I would NOT change it for anything this world has to offer. I am beyond blessed to be a mother...and the mother to a fabulous young lady!
I also need to give a little shout out to my mother...she's pretty fabulous as well! (Hi, Mom! I love you!)
And...drum roll please...I have some great news to share with you!
NO...no more babies!
