Being grateful

I spend a lot of time thinking about all of the blessings that I have in my life.

I wake up each day with my best friend, this man that will do anything with in his control to ease any pain that I am feeling. He settles my nerves as I mature as a mother, he advises me as a mentor as I scale the ladder of my career, he calms my heart as I worry about one thing or the other, and he spoils me endlessly and with out apology.

I safely and healthily brought a beautiful boy in to this world. A boy that melts my heart with his giggles, his babble, his crys, and his sly sly smiles. I get to be the one that cuddles with him at the end of every day, kisses his boo boos, sings him our song, and I have that special nook where he burrows his head when sleepiness is taking over. I get to nourish him, and nurture him , and guide him on his way. I will mother him relentlessly and always be thankful for that opportunity.

Today is my first full day of my 31st year and my wish this year is that I can keep this warm, fuzzy, overjoyed feeling that I feel right now with me all year...
