Jacob can you really be 6 today.. Where have these last 6 years gone? I can remember like it was yesterday holding you in my arms for the first time. You were a gift to us Jacob, we prayed for you and I have been blessed from the moment I found out I was pregnant with you..

You have such a caring heart, you have so many friends and its so cute to see you hang with the "guys". You were pretty funny this year when I would drop you off at school I got the come on and kiss me quick so my friends do not see it "look". You love to play soccer and you love love to watch sports.

I love you Jacob Daniel, you were my 1st born, my 1st son. You were the one who made me a Mom. I am so excited to see the boy you are becoming.

You are going to do great amazing things..

Happy 6th Birthday Jacob

Love, Mom

My little guy is growing up.. As a mom I love to see the boy he is becoming but I am also sad that he is a boy and not my little baby anymore.
Congrats Jacob... we are so proud of you!

Mother's Day

Back in late 2002 I started to wonder if I would ever be a mom..I so had the desire but my body had other ideas.. I went through tests and medicine for about a year and no luck.. I struggled quite a bit and wondered why would God put this desire on my heart if it was not going to happen.

I put up a good front of being OK but on the inside I so wanted to be a mom.. I will never forget a woman's retreat I went on in 2003 and a wonderful speaker was giving her testimony and she said something that just hit me, "Give it to God" simple words but truly if we are honest with ourselves it hard to let go of things and give someone else control.

That night those words kept ringing through my ears, and I said to God, "I give it to you" you have put this desire on my heart and if its what you want for me I know you will make it happen. If not, show me what you would like for us to do whether it be other medicines or adoption, I give it you. That night there was a complete peace.

A few months later I found out I was pregnant. In May of 2004 I became a MOM, and In May of 2006, and in May 2009.. Do you see where My May Munchkins came from:)

My life has never been the same, I have never felt so much love as I do for these little ones. Going through the infertility really taught me to give it God and he knows the desires of my heart and oh he is so faithful..

So on this Mothers Day I want to tell Joshua,Jacob and Ella, thank you.. thank you for filling my life with so much joy. You are 3 amazing kids and I can not even begin to tell you how much I love you..
Happy Mothers Day!
