Gratitude

Our kids are growing up too fast. Before we know it we'll be asking for time with them. Oh gosh, today I am just thankful to be their mom. I don't know what I did to deserve it, but I've been blessed with wonderful children. My heart is full. My life is full.
I know I've been an imperfect parent and that there is so much more I could have done at any given time, but I also know that if anything, I've erred on the side of what was best for my kids. I'm not sure why, but lately I get this pang in my heart and a knot in my belly when I think of the years left I have with them as children.

I feel you on this one Boni! It seems like just yesterday that my oldest daughter Tia was running around in diapers and today she found out that she is going to be a mom....making me a Grandmother...They grow up soooo fast!

I'll be in my sixties when PmPkn is in his teens, I've waited too long for the joy and responsibility, but I'm striving to achieve as much as we can out of what I have left. I'm a bit sad, but still joyous that I'll have the chance to grow up with him. Assuming, I grow up. Relax, Boni. Take a walk on the beach with Sommer, talk with Hope (if possible) Hug Tony Jr. (when he isn't looking) and just enjoy Peyton's sweetness.

Angelo and HJ: great advice, remind me to invite you to my wedding. Tami: time flies too fast sometimes, you'll make a great grandma, loving and with a humongous heart. Mark: Doesn't matter how young or how old we are when we have 'em, just that we love 'em with all that we are. '89ers: I am so jealous, miss you guys although I'm scared to think of what you are all saying about me. Love you, mwuah!

It's all good Bon!
Your blog is so true. Last night, having my friends from my past meet up with my present (my grown sons) gave me a glimpse of my future - one full of love and laughter. Bon, you're doing a great job being an awesome mom. We are all blessed with the most precious gifts of all - our children!
