This morning a few minutes before my alarm was suppose to announce it was time to wake up I felt some movement on my bed. I just continued to keep my eyes closed to see what would happen. I knew it was girl#2 climbing into bed because #1 had to be pulled from bed Mon - Fri and #3 can't get out of her bed. I felt her climb in and pull the covers over then she gently wiggled over to lay right next to me. I opened my eyes to see her looking at me. Then she smiled.
These are the amazing Mommy Moments in my life. I started to think of these moments and knew I needed to write them down. I do not have a good memory and I want to never forget.
When my girls first come out of thier bedrooms in the morning they have this look. The hair is rumpled,thier faces have a softness about them I always get a good morning cuddle and these are the best. They just lean into me and relax. During the day hugs are fast and they have better things to do but in the morning they are warmed hugs.
Girl #3 handed out kisses the other day without being asked. I was holding her and #2came to attack I mean hold her. #3 leaned over and gave her a kiss. My heart melted. This is genuine love for her sister.
Hearing Mom from your baby for the first time. #3 started saying this at 6 months I love it.
I was folding laundry and putting clothes on the hangers and #2 came and grabbed some and said "Mom since you are sick I will be your helper"
Saying dinner prayer the other night #2 prayed that her Mommy and Daddy would not kiss alot anymore. (she is a funny girl)
2 of my Brothers and 1 Sister in-law have served in Iraq. 1 Brother was there for a total of 3 years. We always pray that they will be safe in Iraq. #2 always prays "please make sure so in so is IN Iraq" it is funny how they change things. We have a friend Brian who got back 2 months ago and they are still praying that he is in Iraq. Soon they will remember he is home.
*****To many times I get bummed that people don't comment on this blog. I have realized I have been having pity parties for myself and nobody was coming.This Blog is for my family and the things that I write will one day be made into a book for us. I have changed my thinking and focus on what this blog is for. It no longer is here to validate me(silly I know) I hope you enjoy these Posts but if not they are for me and my children and I now know that is what matter.
Back in the land of the living
