This has been a particularly hard week for me as a mother. I have had some "issues" with Drew that have had me questioning if I was fit for this job. The good news, is that I have concluded that I am. I don't believe that I am perfect, but that I have the desire (thank goodness, right?) to want to do better and to try harder. My Heavenly Father has blessed me with an extremely bright little boy whom I love so much. He has also given me, with Drew and Cameron in my life, MANY opportunities for patience. This is a virtue that I do not possess when it comes to children. I know that I have each day to do better and to work harder at being a better mom. For this, I am so very thankful. I need to spend more time on my knees asking my Heavenly Father for help and guidance as a mom. Especially after hearing Elder Ballard speak at the last General Conference. I take my responsibility as a mom very seriously and realize the huge trust that my Heavenly Father has in me to send me his special little boys. I love my life right now and wouldn't change it for the world! I have THE most amazing husband who is turning out to be such an incredible dad. I love that about him right now! There is a lot to love, but lately it's like he has gone the extra mile for our kids and I love him so much for it. This morning, TJ asked Drew what he wanted to be when he grow up...a Doctor, a Fireman, a Policeman...etc. and Drew said, "I just want to be like you Daddy." TJ and I were both speechless! What a sweet thing to say! Even more, was where it came from. It came from such an innocent, naive, sweet, honest place. He is my amazing little boy. I love him so much!
I love my little Cameron too, even though he doesn't seem to understand (or doesn't want to understand) NO. He is so sweet and is cuddling more and more and is trying to talk. AHHH! I just love it! I'm going to end with a layout I just made with a picture of TJ and cameron. It is sooo sweet. I love it! Enjoy.
