I'm One Lucky Woman/Mother
I stayed up with them chatting and enjoying the present moment. When i went to lay down to sleep, i started crying a bit. Happy cry. I realized how lucky and blessed I am. I thanked God for my life, my kids and my family. I told God that i have no regrets and would never take back anything from the past. Not that i would do it again, but it is in the past and my kids and i are at such an amazing place today. We are happy and at peace. We may not have money (yet) but we are not hungry. Our bills are paid and we have food to eat. My kids are healthy, so truly what more can i ask for?
My Captain loves me so much. I get about 100 kisses and hugs from him a day. He tells me DAILY, "mommy you are a princess. You so buutiful (beautiful) and i love you bigger than the uniberse (universe)." He caresses my face and cheeks so gently and constantly reminds me of how pretty I am. He tells me stories and sooths my heart. He knows when I'm upset even tho i don't show it....or at least i don't think i do. But he/they know. He makes my world all the better. He makes everything ok.
If you are a mother, please put everything aside. Take some time out for your children. Turn off the cell phones and TV and just enjoy staring into their eyes as they talk to you. You don't even have to say much. Just be still with them. They know when we are not paying attention. Trust me.
No matter what is happening or has happened, I'm one lucky woman :-))))
