I remember one really bad day with Landon; we were so frustrated with each other. While I was running errands later that night I saw a quote: “Everyday holds the possibility of a miracle.”

There are many things I love about motherhood. The most important one though is that my children make me HAPPY!
I love how whenever I sit down on the couch at least one or two of the kids magically come out of the woodwork to come snuggle with me, like little magnets! They know it’s one of my favorite things to do–to be surrounded and snuggled by my family.
If the day is a particularly bad one, and I have my fair share, I remind myself that my children didn’t chose to come here and be stuck with a miserable mother. I try to change my mindset. It’s a choice everyday.
Some things happen to us because of our choices and some things just happen. When things have “just happened” to me, I have tried to have an attitude that I have the choice of how I am going to react in any given situation.
You might be surprised to find out that the death of one of our daughters has not been the hardest part of motherhood for me. I don’t completely understand that myself, other than I was given a mercy that surpasses my ability to cope.
We have a running joke in our family. When my husband and I first were married he said that he wanted to have ten kids. I told him that I would do the first five and he would need to figure out how to get the other five here.
