Looking back

As I sit here this morning, I can’t help but reminisce about my life.  I’ve lived a good 25 years thus far, and plan on living for many more years.  In my lifetime, I’ve been blessed with many things. The most important to me though, is family.  
Aren’t I cute? 
My parents raised me well. They taught me the importance of love, compassion, service, and church.  They taught me many lessons growing up, and I will always be grateful for that. 
I grew up with 3 brothers and 2 sisters, who I love dearly.  We were a normal family, with sibling fights, but we still love each other and move past our disagreements.  I had the great opportunity to run a 5K with my2 sisters yesterday for my birthday. I had so much fun just spending that time with my sisters
The family unit is so very important to me.  My parents taught me this as we sat down to a family dinner every night, and breakfast most mornings.  Thanks to the love of my family growing up, I was able to meet and marry a wonderful man, and create a family with him.  I hope to instill in my family the same love my parents taught and showed me.  I want my Princess’ to be able to “run a race” together when they are older and have gone different directions in their life.
This is the love of my life.  Mark, I am so thankful you’re mine!

No matter what my children are doing – sleeping, playing, or making a mess, I will always love them. I only hope I can be as good a parent as mine were and still are to me and my siblings.
