As each year goes by, I often wonder what I would do without my mom. Now that I have my own little nugget, I appreciate everything my mom has done for me and given me with an even greater abundance. As any mother knows, it is no easy job. It is a life long journey of sacrifices, silliness, rules, play dough in the carpet, masterpieces on the walls, never ending negotiations, memories, ups, downs and everything in between. It's a day to day commitment with no pause or fast forward, and yet we wouldn't change a thing... I will never forget the first time I heard Grace cry when she was born, I remember immediately thinking "that's her" without a doubt, it was her. It was the first time I had heard a peep from her, yet it was the most familiar sound I had ever heard. That feeling, I will never forget... it was the most amazing thing I had ever felt and that was just the beginning of this amazing connection... The connection of momma and child. :)
