I also like to take a picture of me with my boys, so I can see how they have grown. This is this year's picture, which made my jaw drop:
When did my boys get so big?!?! When did their youthful childish grins turn into the confident smiles of young men? And how did I get so lucky?
A year ago, I left my job (that I loved) because I was giving the best of myself to other people's children. I had no energy left for my own. And since then I have been saying - and even calling this blog - "I don't have a job".
Not true. Not even close to true.
I am so fortunate to have the most amazing job in the world. I am a Mom. I am a wife. I am a daughter and a sister and a cousin and a niece and a really good friend.
And I really, really love all my jobs.
Yes, I have some tough stuff in my life. But who doesn't? Everyone has something. But I have wonderful people on my team.
Thanks, you faboo co-workers.
Am I lucky or what?
