6 Years

That's how long this poor fellow's been stuck with me. 
I am a lucky lady!
Let me count the ways:
  • Brings me flowers when I have an amazing day.
  • Successfully puts the girls to bed all by himself without complaining.
  • Does the dishes.
  • Takes out the trash.
  • Does the laundry.
  • Babysits my friends kids so I can go out with my friends.
  • Works hard at school.
  • Does church volunteer work as though he were getting paid(works hard because he wants to serve!).
  • Is very kind to me and the little ladies.
  • Helps those around him who need help.
  • Very talented in music, art, speaking, teaching, writing, playing with kids, making friends, keeping friends, caring for our family.
  • etc., etc., etc....

You get the picture, I'm a lucky lady!

Kissy face time.

Over the last 6 years we have had a lot of good times and some hard times, 
but look what we got out of it all...

I'm looking forward to many more years and an eternity together.

I love you Scott!
Thank you for being such an amazing husband and father.

I never knew how much love my heart could hold until someone called me "mommy." -- Author Unknown

This morning I was woken up at what felt like the crack of dawn by my little Jane. 
7:45 am feels like the crack of dawn when you don't 
go to bed until single digits start rolling around again.

She climbed into bed with me since I couldn't yet speak, move, 
or even open my sandpaper eyes, and cuddled up to mommy log. 

Jane is my talker. 

Well, Lucy can't talk yet, but even still, I know Jane will be my talker. 
She said more at 7:45 am than I will probably say before noon. 
She kept talking and talking, and honestly, I don't remember any of it.

Until this...

"Mommy, you are the best mommy in the whole world."

And then,
"And daddy has the best baby in the whole world, and mommy has 
the best baby in the whole world and I have 
the best sister in the whole world."


She had me at "mommy".

Have you ever read this quote?

I never knew how much love my heart could hold until someone called me "mommy."

Words could not describe that feeling better.
I feel so grateful to have been blessed with two little angels.
Yeah, there are hard days, but then there are moments like 
this that melt all the hard stuff away.

I have the best daughters in the whole world.
Hope you are finding moments like this during your days.
