love and thanksgiving

I thought I understood what love was growing up with a loving mother and brothers and sisters, or when I married my best friend.  I didn’t completely understand until I held my baby boy in my arms for the first time.  Having children truly feels like I’m wearing my heart outside of my body and every day I can’t believe how much I love those two little people.

We had a very difficult time getting our first two children and in this struggle it has made me even more grateful for my children and the opportunity to be their mother.  I feel so blessed that I get to be a mother to one more child coming this May ( I’m fourteen weeks pregnant).  I’m looking forward to feeling the baby move and for the morning sickness to go away.

Before Henrik was born I spent years wondering if I would ever be a mother.  In this time of Thanksgiving I am most grateful for the privilege of being the mother to (in my opinion) the sweetest most loving children.

    I completely agree and love how you expressed it. We have had different journeys but I am also deeply grateful to get to be a mother and to be able to look forward to a new baby in the spring. So glad we get to be pregnant at the same time. Happy Thanksgiving!
