Why I celebrate today.

This is my reason.
These are my reasons.
I did this layout on Friday night and I just love how it came together. When I had thought about this picture and the layout I would do with it, it wasn't this vision. That is one thing I love about the craft of scrapbooking, you never know which direction some paper and glue will take you.
This was a photo of Josh and I that Kate took on the train ride back from NYC this winter. I love what she caught in this photo. I had alot of journaling in mind for this photo, but this title said it all to me in the end.
I feel very connected to my son. He and I are pals, fierce as it may be sometimes. But I feel we also have the balance of Mom and Son too. It is a fine line. Love is almost a given between a Mom and a son, but like is even more special. I love that Josh and I share the competitiveness gene we have. It isn't always smiles and laughs....but it also is an amazing thing to see your son strive to be #1 all the time. I love his drive, his ambition and hi determination in all things. It is something that makes him a hero to me and at his young age I admire him and what he will accomplish in life with these tools.
I love that I get to celebrate this day as his Mom, I love that he is the reason.

Happy Mom's day to everyone that gets to experience their own miracles everyday. Four legged included!!
