Good Life

I ask myself, could I be anymore blessed? And really, I could not (except if I had a super power that allowed me to live in Arizona and in Minnesota. And save all the tragic environmental corruption going on..but that is a whole other blog.) But back to my blessedness...Mother's Day seems like such a weird day. I feel like I should be giving presents to my husband and kids because I can't be believe how lucky I am to be in their lives. I have the most amazing husband...he makes me laugh, we still have thought-provoking discussions, he grills a fabulous steak and he cares so deeply for our kids that I can't even begin to thank him for the love he has given to the kids and myself. Then there are the kids...wow...WAY BETTER THEN I EVER THOUGHT!! Who would have ever believed that I could laugh so much. The poop, the vomit, the boogers, the messy house, the sleepless nights....I would do it a million times over to have had the opportunity for these beautiful beings to be in my life. And beautiful they are....Mason and his long eyelashes and giggles and how EVERY.SINGLE.TRUCK he sees he says "Big truck, vroom vroom...." I will never get sick of it. And then there is Kendall....I love that she is so creative. She claps and sings and twirls and dances and she is dramatic and silly and exuberant. In my mind, they are 100% the definition of beauty. I look at them and my heart gets weak....everyday I pick them up and smell their hair and kiss their cheeks and every night when I walk out of their room I whisper a prayer that they are always safe and happy and live a full life. I have a good life, actually, it is a great life and I am just going to sit here and enjoy it, because that was why I was given it. P.S. I didn't mention my own mom--what was I thinking? Well, she is undeniably one of the most generous people I know in this world. Generous with her love and kind thoughts. She always sends us sweet gifts and she emails me these yummy recipes and little notes about her days and I just appreciate knowing that I have such good genes. I love you Mom....
