A Thank You To My Sons

Photobucket
On Mother's Day I always reflect on my sons. Remembering when they were small, and missing those days. Laughing at the memories surrounding their births. Marveling at the young men they have become.

If it wasn't for them I feel like I would be nothing today. While I made them, they made me. No matter how down I am, I can look at them & know that I am a success. I am a great mom, who has raised 2 fantastic boys. No anxiety or bipolar disorder will ever take that away from me.

For all of you hoping to be mothers, I pray that your dreams come true one way or another.

And for John David & Jack Andrew, a million thanks just for being you. I coudn't be prouder or love you more.

Amy said...

I agree with MaryRC I love, love, love that quote! I always thank my girls and my Hubs on Mama's Day b/c I couldn't be a Mom if it wasn't for them. Congrats again on your day - i am glad I got to know you a little. I will be back!

Geeta said...

Reading posts that have to do with motherhood make me want to be one ...

I have to refrain though. Two key things are missing. Finishing college and my prince charming.

But it's lovely to read about =]

{Katie Lane} said...

This is so sweet, I can't wait to have kids!

Michelle (hometc) said...

I feel the same way about my daughter, she is a blessing everyday. Your sons are lucky to have such a loving mom.

Selaen said...

It's an awesome tribute. One note though:

Even without your sons, you'd be something. Yes, you wouldn't be the same person as you are today, but you'd still be wonderful!

Awww, that is sweet. Hi from SITS!

Becky said...

So sweet. I have twin two year old boys and I sometimes wish I could freeze time and keep them small. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day.

Happy SITS Day!

Kate Coveny Hood said...

What handsome boys! I agree completely - your children really do "make" you. I have friends who have decided not to have kids and while I wholeheartly support their decision and even agree that it's best for them, I just can't imagine having my own. They have absolutely made me a better person.

Industrioushead said...

Mrs. M said...

What a sweet post! [By the way, my children will never be that big...right?]

We had a wild Mother's Day this year so it didn't really happen, but I usually try to make the day special for Hubby and the kids...after all, the kids are the whole point of being a mom and without Hubby I wouldn't be Mommy to begin with!

Brandy said...

That's so sweet...and true. Here we are thinking that we mold them when it's definitely the reverse.

Pricilla said...

They are quite handsome. Congratulations.
Happy SITS Day.

Cammie said...

so hard to imagine my kids at that age...I have a feeling it will be here before I blink though

Mandy said...

That is so sweet. I love taking time to reflect on my kids on Mother's day. I mean without our kids we wouldn't be mothers right? Happy mom's day and Happy SITS day. :)

I keep telling my kids to stop growing. Only the youngest one wants to stay my baby.

Esther said...

Yes, I don't think I became fully me until I had my children and they forced me to branch out and grow up and become stronger.

Angie Marion said...

Being a mom is great huh? It is funny how we make them but they also make us!

I'm a day late but I'm stopping by from SiTS! Have a great day!
