Almost 6 years ago the two most beautiful things came into my life. They were 1 week old. For two years we were unsure whether they would stay in our lives forever, but thankfully they did. Today we celebrate our twin girls 6th birthday. They are not always easy, but they have allowed me to experience giving a love greater than I've ever known I've had. The heart bursting, if you hurt them I will come after you type of love.
We will head out for breakfast, then church (another one to try) and then have a fun kid party with 11 of their kindergarten friends. It will be fun.
We got them presents of course, but in my mind I think that I am giving them gift far greater than can be wrapped. I am making myself healthier so I can be around for them for a long time. They may not understand that, but I do. I know that I want to be able to celebrate grandchildren with them someday. So to my birthday angels: Mommy loves you and my gift to you for each year is to make myself healthy so you will have me as long as possible!!
Have a great Sunday!
