Food for thought!

I was walking out of target the other day and I heard a Mom yell say to her 2 girls, " You know what? We are not going to say MOMMY anymore today! GOT IT?" and they both sadly looked up at her and shook there heads...

This almost brought tears to my eyes. I am so thankful for everyday that I get to hear the word Mama! There are so many people who can't have children or have lost a child and would give anything to hear those words just one more time. The world is suffering right now with all its loss, but I know I have my family and that makes me smile no matter how tough times might be. I am so grateful to have Makayla to love and laugh at and to just be part of my life..it wouldn't be complete without her.

Don't get me wrong we have our bad days, but good or bad I wouldn't trade them for the world. So just remember on those bad days when you want to pull your hair out or just scream, think about how grateful you are to hear the word Mama or Daddy everyday, and be thankful!


  1. I couldn't agree more. People don't truly appreciate what they have until it's gone.

  2. i'm not a mommy yet, but i LOVE your outlook on it :)
