My life as a mom continues to develop as my baby develops! It's great fun to see my little one growing up. I feel like he is a baby and a little boy all-at-the-same-time. I love him so much, and I always hope that he will think I am a good mama when he grows up old enough, hopefully, to think about it. A mother's love is a beautiful thing.
It's a beautiful thing to watch a father's love too. As I watch my husband enjoying his son, and having fun father-son times of listening to music together or hanging out in daddy's office while daddy works, etc., my heart is blessed!
Not every child has a mom and a dad that are near. Not every parent gets to raise their child to adulthood. Let's not take these moments for granted! My own father died very young which only goes to show that we don't know what the next moment may hold. Let's hold our children closer. They are gifts to be treasured above the "stuff" that we strive to acquire. Enjoy your children every moment you can.
