Mother's day Part 1

I wish all Mom's today a great day! It is so fun to have a day to honor Motherhood, even tho everyday is an honor to be someones Mom. (Even those days it isn't the funnest day in the world).

Today has been a dream come true.

I mean in every sense of the word a dream.

I know motherhood is a "surprise" to some, some it is a planned thing.

However you become a mom, it is truly one of the best things that can happen in ones life.

Of course this is just my opinion, but I strongly believe this.

My journey to become a mom started in 1997, when I met the womyn of my dreams.

Kate was the first womyn I had ever met that I knew right from the start that I wanted

to have a child with.
I knew I didn't want to be a single parent, altho many times I was about to give up hope of finding a partner that would be a parent with me. So I can't say I wouldn't have done it, but I didn't want to go that route.

So the week after our first date, I started with the doctor appts, making sure I would be able to have a baby. Knowing it wouldn't be an easy road, we started the long journey.

The short....2 miscarriages, 7 trys over 2 1/2 years and Joshua was born.

It was not a fun journey, but it was a priceless one. I feel so blessed every day. Even those days it feels like not such a blessing to be disciplining him, or trying to teach him a tough lesson, or watching him make a mistake...and knowing this is all part of the process of becoming the man he will become.

So this brings me to today, 7 years later when my little guy wakes up and the first words from his mouth are "Happy Mom's day"

I could have burst into tears right then and there. I hugged him so tight, he had to tell me to let him go. Josh doesn't fully realize how much I dreamed of hearing those words for so many years. I try and show him everyday how much I love him and how special he is to me. I can only hope I am doing a good job.

So after the breakfast in bed, and the golfballs, golf glove and kisses and hugs. He hands me this piece of paper they did in school. ( Always love those little things he makes in school)

So this is what it is all about, I am so using these in my scrapbook! This is part one of today, there is more to come.
