Calm after the storm

I keep planning on sitting down to write about all of the craziness that is our family over the past month....but I am tired and ready to move so I won't. After a month of Birthday party planning, family reunion excitement and lots of company I am ready to take a deep breath and finally get back to normal life.

The past month has been full of so much emotion, overwhelming joy and overwhelming hurt. If nothing else I have learned valuable lessons...I have learned how very blessed I am to be surrounded by people that love me and support me. I have learned to prioritize my life- what and who are the most important to me and do they know it?

Life has truly been good to me and I thank God daily for blessing me with the gift of being a mother to two incredibly sweet and intelligent kids, a wife to a supportive and strong husband, friend to irreplacable and beautiful ladies, sister to an amazing and intelligent women and daughter to not only wise parents by blood but by two parents in law who have taken me into their arms and hearts and taught me unconditional love.
