Yes, it is true. I am happy to be his mama. Today and everyday.
Today was a special day for me. The breakfast in bed was delightful and the jewelry set Brandon and Bennett made me was priceless. I loved the LifeSaver mint necklace, the fruit loop bracelet and the dot candy ring. I wore them proudly to church. Bennett kept licking me. I loved it.
Those things made my day especially special - but what really made me want to smile today was how happy I am to simply be his... his mom. His shoulder to cry on. His cheerleader. His greatest fan. As a little girl I remember longing to be a mother. Longing to be the one person that could make my sweet baby calm, when others could not. I love those moments. I love Bennett's kisses and tight hugs. I love those little arms when they are wrapped tightly around my neck. I love the smiles he shares with me everyday. I love being a mother. His mother.
I am also very grateful for my mother. She is beautiful inside and out. She is inspiring. She is kind. She loves me. I am hers. I am grateful. I love you, Mom.
I am grateful for all of the mothers in my life. You are a blessing to me each and everyday. I love you.
