mother's day~

I have been a mom for
14 years. Believe me, it's been quite a journey,if
you are a mom yourself you know.

That first moment that they place that little
life in your arms and you look down
at that tiny little person, it all begins.
 Life as a Mom.

I remember the day I became a Mom
like it was yesterday; Sunday August 24, 1997.

I woke up at 3:00a.m. and knew that something
was going on! I quickly woke Rick and said
I think it's time. Right away, like first timers, we
call the hospital in a frantic! They calmly said, "how many minutes
are they?" Well, of course,
it wasn't time and were told to relax and keep them
posted.  I went and layed on the couch and Rick
goes back to bed....WHAT? I thought...we are having a baby
and you are going back to bed!

I saw the sunrise that day, it was beautiful.
When things were progressing, my sweet husband
says to me, "it's a beautiful day to have a baby".

We made it to the hospital, almost too late! It's a good thing
we were only 4 minutes from the hospital, because that's
what the contractions were apart!

At 2:53p.m. we were blessed with our sweet baby girl
all 7lbs 2 oz and 19 1/2"long. She was perfect!

Motherhood has been quite a journey, I am not
kidding when I say that it hasn't
been all peaches and cream. It is certainly
a challenge, but we have this
wonderful sweet girl.

She is growing up so fast and has
become a wonderful young woman.  We are so proud
of her and I am proud to be her Mom.

I hope that you had a wonderful
Mother's Day!
