Embracing Motherhood

I am sitting here at work thinking about my cute little family, wishing I was home with them! I am SO grateful to them for what they bring to my life daily...I am thankful to Zach for embracing this journey of parenthood with me. He makes being a wife and mom so fun. His life is centered around us and I truly appreciate it. I love listening to Kohen talk about anything and everything. His voice is so DANG cute. He is always concerned about his sister and making sure everyone is Happy. Sometimes he will ask me..Mom You Happy today? I love him SO much! Addison is the little peacemaker. She is ALWAYS smiling and it is contagious. She lights up if you just look at her. Kohen is her world and LOVES when he gives her just one minute. They are the light of my life. I am thankful to Heavenly Father for trusting Zach and me to raise these sweet little people. I am thankful for each breath that they take, for their sweet Innocent laugh..for BIG BEAR hugs and the sweet little voice that tells me he needs a kiss. For the countless Smiles and the PURE joy that I feel everyday being a mom. I love you Zach, Kohen and Addison...

Embracing Motherhood
I’d rather sing a lullaby, late into the night than live a life of luxury, donning jewels so bright. I’d rather wipe a tear, and kiss away the pain than come home to an empty house, feeling lonely again. I’d rather invest in diapers and clothes that wear too fast than prove our prestige and wealth in things that just don’t last. I’d rather be a Mom; no greater job there is. Each child is a blessing, because each child is His. ~Becky Squire
