Happy (Grand)Mother's Day!

I love being a mother. There was nothing I wanted more when I was growing up than to be a mom. It hasn't always been easy. I had my days when I wondered whatever posessed me, wondered if could handle the screaming baby or defiant adolescent one more minute, wondered if I had what it took to raise a "special" kid. To any mom out there reading this I have to say that you wouldn't be normal if you didn't occasionally doubt yourself but remember that God won't give you more than you can handle or "That which doesn't kill us makes us stronger"! lol Being a mother has been the greatest blessing of my life. I am proud of the adults that my children have become. And the greatest reward for raising children?...................................................
GRANDCHILDREN! This is my first year celebrating Mother's Day as a Grandma. I've been blessed with not one but two beautiful granddaughters since last year! I would never have dreamed that it was possible to love someone that you didn't give birth to as much as I love these little girls! Keira was born to my son and future daughter-in-law last September and Julia Marie was born to my older daughter and future son-in-law just eleven days ago.
