Blessed to be called Mommy.

There was a time when I didn't know if I would ever hear the word "mommy". Times I thought it would never happen to me. I knew I wanted to be a mom since the time I was a little girl. There was no question about it. Fast forward to 2001 when I got married. I married an amazing man and I was blessed to have found him. I couldn't wait to have kids. I never would have dreamed what lay ahead for us. The years of infertility and medical procedures and the loss of our firstborn daughter, Zoe Renae, who was born stillborn at 21 weeks. Through it all I some how clung to the hope that I would be a mom. There were days that I just had to hold tight to my faith and trust that the Lord had a plan. I knew that He had put that desire in my heart from the time I was a little girl and I believed that it would come to pass. God was faithful and continues to be faithful to give me the desires of my heart. The journey to motherhood has been long and painful, but these 2 little faces make it all worth it. They are the joys of my life and they bring me so much happiness everyday. I love you Brooklyn and Sydney Kate with all my heart.

To my other sweet daughter, Zoe Renae, I miss you everyday and I look forward to the day I get to see you again. I am proud to be your Mommy.

To my mom. Thank you for giving me life and for raising me to know and serve the Lord. You were and continue to be a wonderful example for me to follow. I know I say it all the time, but I don't know how you did it. For those that don't know, my mom had 4 girls in 5 years. She and my dad didn't really have family nearby and my dad worked a lot to make sure my mom could stay home with me and my sisters. She was truly Supermom in every sense of the word. She managed to get us to school and pick us up only to chauffeur us around at night to softball and soccer practices. To this day, you continue to be an integral part in my life and I am so glad the girls have such a wonderful nana. I love you mom. Happy Mother's Day!
