Sometimes it feels a bit strange to realize that I am an adult. You would think the husband, two children, and house would be a pretty good indicator. So here I am all grown up surrounded by this fantastic family. I am not sure how I got so lucky to be partnered with such a wonderful person who accepts, loves, and challenges me. I thoroughly enjoy his friendship and his amazing ability to say in one sentence what it has taken me an hour to say. I have two healthy and reasonably happy children. We live in a comfortable and safe home in a wonderful neighborhood. Bottom line I am feeling pretty friggin lucky.
I always knew I wanted to be a mom. It may not have happened exactly the way I envisioned, but it has turned out to be more than I could ever imagined. It is more challenging, more full of love, more exhausting, more silly, more gooey, and more wonderful. I am full of gratitude on this Mother's Day for being given the gift and privilege of guiding these two sweet souls through the world.
Happy Mother's Day!
