The Joys of Motherhood

~ The adoration in your 18 month old's eyes as he flies across the room to your arms.
~ The hilarity of listening to your 7 year old read knock knock jokes to you that she doesn't understand.
~ Sharing moments of genuine companionship with your 11 year old.
~ Enjoying the affection of your still-huggy 9 year old son.
~ Girl talk with your 10 year old.
~ The beauty of your 5 year old's heart shaped face - and of her lovely heart.
~ Enjoying a good laugh with your 12 year old.

Please note:  Cleaning up vomit is not on the list.  If you have a means of communicating this to my children's digestive systems, please let me know!

I'm glad you "got it!" I'm learning to treasure moments as they come... and to laugh when they're not so fun. :-)
