Sometimes, when reading the journals of others, I am served a reality check. Today was one of those sometimes.
When I go home tonight, I will hold my precious babies as if there will be no tomorrow. I will thank God for the blessings that are my children, as I have done dozens of times before. I will be thankful for their health, their intelligence, their beauty, their lives. I will appreciate the enrichment they bring to me and Chris and I will be grateful for their very existence. I will study each line of their faces, gaze at them infinitely and run my fingers through their strawberry blonde hair. I will tell them how lucky I am to be their mommy.
