I believe each moment is a gift. And each child a true blessing. When the hubby and I got married, he came with two little humans. Two little humans whom I instantly loved like they were my own. Sixteen years as a family later and I couldn’t love them more. They are my kiddos and I would do anything for them.
Our oldest kiddo just blessed us with another grand baby. Oh, he’s perfect! The cutest chubby little cheeks and a head full of reddish blonde hair. Helping her bring him into this chaotic crew was one of my greatest joys in life. That she wants me their makes my heart soar. She trusts me to help her and support her in one of life’s greatest moments. It’s not something I take for granted.
With all of the new post-Covid restrictions in place, the hospital only allowed two support people. So the honor is even greater that beside her husband it was me she wanted. And being able to spend most of my new grand baby’s first day of life with him was spectacular!
Just like his big sister, my arms were the second set of arms to keep him safe and warm. Something I will never forget. Cradling this new little life close to me reminded me just how precious every moment truly is.
I love my kids. All of them. The two I was blessed with when I met their dad. The one who was adopted in through friendship. The two I grew from scratch. These are my kids. There is nothing in this world I wouldn’t to to help them, support them, and cheer them on. And it makes this mommas heart soar when they want me in their moments. I’m one blessed momma.
And though I have to eventually leave the newest member of the Chaos Crew and head back home, I’ll treasure every moment I get with him. For now, more snuggles are needed.
