I want to be in all senses of the words, All. Things. Mama.
As far back as I can remember I've wanted to be a mom, not just any mom, but the mom that stays home with her kids full time. The mom who loves even when she is not loved back, who can't breathe without thinking of her kids first. The mom who loves teaching, playing, cooking, baking, laughing, and kissing owies. The mom who is ALL THINGS MAMA. My husband and I scrimp so that dream can be fulfilled. Being a mom is not part time for me. It is something that has captured my heart. All of the going ons of my life start with thoughts of my kids. My kids consume my love and my life and I allow it because, with God's help they are the essence of what makes me a mother. This is me...

Will you pass me the thankfulness, please?

Thanksgiving was wonderful! I am stuffed full of the big heaping plate of thankfulness we all consumed on Thursday.  Too many blessings to count..and if I really did eat them for dinner I would weigh a thousand pounds.
Since last Thanksgiving we have been blessed with another child, my husband's job, and many more things that are too many to sit and write.  It's an overflowing cup of love that we call our lives.  God does not let us down.
If  you did not try a serving of  thankfulness this year, go ahead, take a bite, it's delicious and it's the best meal you'll ever eat! It also makes you a better person.  My goal for now until next Thanksgiving is to be more thankful, not take anything for-granted, and show my gratitude to others more often!
So, here goes, I should start now
Thank you Lord for EVERYTHING
Thank you Darrell for working so hard and being a good hubby and daddy
Thank you Mom for raising me and now being a great Grammy to my kids and for cooking a delicious Thanksgiving meal this year!
Thank you Dad for always making us laugh, giving us diaper money for our kids, and being a fun Grandpa or Papa (as Mel says) to Melanie and Easton.
Thank you Mom and Dad Cummins for everything you do for us and for your awesome grand-parenting skills toward Melanie and Easton too!
Thanks to all friends and family for being a shoulder to cry on, a person to laugh with, a someone to eat with, the one to drink coffee with, a hand to hold, a listening ear, for all the things that my friends and family do for me...I am thankful!
