I'm grateful for a husband and help-meet who supports and encourages me in my motherhood, who helps me be the best mother I can. I couldn't do what I do without his help, physical and emotional. To share with him the joy of raising these girls has been the greatest pleasure and blessing.
I truly feel that raising these girls is my calling in life. I've never been more tired or more fulfilled. Oddly, one of my first thoughts sitting in the hospital after I had Clara was that, one day, I would be there helping her bring a sweet babe into the world. I still get a little emotional thinking about it. I hope they all get to experience the miracle of motherhood (of body or soul, there are many forms) and can in turn gain a small inkling of the love I have, and always will have, for them.
Happy Mother's Day.
