because i'm a mom...

i see the world differently now.
my testimony has grown stronger than
i ever knew it could.
i know true, unconditional love.
i am the kind of happy that doesn't end.
i know what's really important to me.
i realize i know next to nothing about raising children

(just thinking about when bennett is a teenager gives me the "uh-oh" feeling)
i'm okay with being peed on puked on...all of the above.

i am a mom. a grateful, flawed, overly worried,
hopeful, faithful, head over heels for my baby, mom...

all because of him...

and wouldn't be near the parent i am, if it weren't for him...

i have everything i need. happy mothers day to me.

and happy mothers day to my little lady
who taught me love, real beauty, sincerity
and patience...the woman is drenched in patience. you are what being a mom is all about.

Catie, I love you! You are the cutest mom and have such a beautiful family. You are so inspiring to me and I'm not joking when I say I want to be like you.

I'm so grateful you are in my life!
