Now that my boys are older, they bought me gifts that they picked out, instead of their Dad helping them. What was special, was not the gifts, which I loved, it was the thought that went into them. My boys make me so proud. They are growing into strong independent individuals. I never thought that I would be a mother, let alone enjoy watching every step my sons have taken in life.
I had problems getting pregnant. I finally went to a specialist, a few months later I was pregnant. We were one of the lucky ones, many couples never experience the joy of being parents. My husband stood by me, letting me "choose" how many procedures I was willing to go through to get pregnant.
The joy of motherhood is something that can never be described adequately. It is a huge responsibility, but the rewards far outweigh the negatives. No one is ever actually ready for parenthood, but the best meet the challenge with love and excitement. Never take your children for granted. Hug them and love them, everyday.
Thank you boys! Your gifts were the best, but more importantly, you are the best. I love you. Mom.
