Day 7- A Picture of Someone Who Has Had the Biggest Impact...

I have had so many thoughts on this subject because so many people have made a huge impact on my life. I am very much a product of the people around me- and I am grateful to have been surrounded by so many wonderful influences. I would have to say though, that these two people have made the biggest impact...

Before these two came along, I only thought I had an idea of what life would be like as a mom.  I had my little brothers and sister to help take care of, numerous kids that I babysat, and I was even a Nanny for almost a year in Portland- but nothing...nothing...prepared me for motherdom. 

These two have taught me more than I could have ever learned any other way.  They NEVER go away, so no matter what- I have to deal with it- the good, the bad, the ugly and everything else, and I LOVE it.  I have never laughed so hard, cried as much or been more frustrated all at once, and it's a testament to what I can handle.  I've never been so entertained! 

I love these two more than life.   I can't imagine my life without them in it.  I'm so grateful they chose me- and that I was trusted to take care of them for now.  I just wish they wouldn't grow up so fast!
