I am not one to post the perfect moments in my life because you know what, they do not exist. My moments are imperfect and because of that my life is amazing. My life is made up of so many frustrating and embarrassing moments, moments that make me smile and make me sigh. Moments that make me scream and moments that make me cry. Moments that make me frustrated and moments that make me proud.
I have a beautiful life. My mom and dad gave me this life and made me the person I am, and my husband and children have given my life meaning.
There are days that I do not want to keep doing what I am doing and feel that what I do goes unnoticed. There are days that I yearn for the freedom of my single days. There are days that I think I would be happier with more free time.
I realize though that what I do makes a difference, and that freedom means I would not have Shannon, RJ, & Lily, and that free time would be boring.
I was born on Mother's Day. Now that I have my own family I have a special few days of my own and regardless of what they do for me those days are special.
This year for my birthday I took the day off of work and I mowed the lawn, then I went out to lunch with Shannon. For Mother's Day we went to lunch with my mother-in-law and then I trimmed our donkey's hooves. They were both good days, not perfect days, but perfect for me.
