Being a Mom

There's lots to be said for being a mom.

Sometimes there are tears...

And all you want to do is take them by the hand and lead them down the right path....


Holidays take on new joy....


Then they grow and you start to see them turn into their own little person...


Expressing their creativity....


And taking huge new leaps....


Being a mom means unconditional love, munchable cheeks, shrieks of unbridled joyous laughter. Being a mom also means worrying inside that your child has every single little thing go right in their life ... and being there when it doesn't.

Today Zack presented me with a flower....


A sweet carnation bud, still tightly wrapped up, waiting to fully open. He explained that he picked it specially for me, because since it still hadn't opened, that meant it would stick around longer.

That's how I feel about being a mom .... taking the time to watch the buds slowly open and bloom in their full glory.

Happy Mother's Day.

    My heart feels all glowy. Despite the moments where I want to scream there are really so many redeeming moments that make me want to sing!
