TO MY CHILDREN + MOTHER'S DAY 2018
Dear Tessla + Adaline,
I knew I always wanted to be mom but I never knew what that meant till I had you two! Tessla I will never forget the gasp when I saw those faint pink lines!! I ran out to your dad in that tiny studio apartment and cried for joy! "It finally happened!!!", I thought, in no way did I fully understand the love that would grow till I touched you for the first time. Adaline, girl you were such a surprise that has completed our family. Your dad told me I was pregnant... I felt so many emotions, and thought how is it possible to have enough love for everyone? Sweet girl you have opened my heart more than I ever could imagine!!! Girls I am so grateful for the life I have with you! You have taught me how to grow and accept help... you have taught me how to enjoy the smallest treasures this world has to offer. I am so proud to be your mama! I prayed for this moment and I will continue to pray for each of you. Sometimes I have to remind myself that this is only the beginning, and we are not promised tomorrow. SO! With that I promise to cherish you, to make sure you know how proud of you I am, to make you feel loved and teach you how to love! I know I can speak for your father when I say, " WE want nothing more for you two, than to understand God's unconditional love!" I hope I can show you both as you grow. Thank you girls for showing me the meaning of MOTHERHOOD!
These pictures were taken a week after we brought Adaline home! Tessla wasn't very sure what to think... but now they are so close! I couldn't be more proud of my girls! They grow so fast it honestly makes me cry how fast it goes!
With Mother's Day coming up I want to encourage you, wether you are expecting, trying, have angel babies, or earth side munchkins... God knows your heart and I pray you cherish every moment you have! I understand the two beautiful gifts I have... and even though most days I want to rip my hair out... I love them till the end of the universe!
Happy Mother's Day!
