Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to be a Mom.....and of course since I am one of two girls I wanted to have a little girl...growing up I never even thought that I wouldn't have a girl...but as fate would have it....and I am sure God knew what he was doing way more than I did....we were blessed with two awesome boys. After my boys were born I learned very quickly that you simply cannot beat the whole Mother-Son thing...that bond is amazing and I am so grateful for it....but still I had hoped that we would have a girl but alas that was not to be.....not to be until of course Jeremy got married. Then not only did I finally have a girl to love....I had an AMAZING girl to love. I couldn't be happier with Jeremy's choice....Holly is wonderful. So today I am grateful for a wonderful new daughter-in-law. Thanks Holly for loving Jeremy and being a wonderful new addition to our family.
If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware. The tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered around the house, the piles and piles of laundry lying around to be tackled, will disappear all too soon. And, you will, to your surprise, miss them profoundly.
