today...

I am so grateful to be a mother. To be able to look at the faces of my two beautiful children. To see them smile. To comfort them when they cry. To teach them. To love them unconditionally.

Today, I cried tears of joy because I have you...

and because I have you...
just because Logan, I feel so overwhelmed with joy when I look into your eyes, when I try to understand our interesting conversations, when I can comfort you after falling on the pavement and scratching your hands, when you say "I sorry" after I told you not to do something followed by a great big kiss, always. Just because you are truly an angel to me.
and I really don't care that you mess your perfectly gelled hair up or you get chalk & dirt all over your cloths and hands... even still you are without a doubt a handsome little boy...
you fill my life with so much happiness & joy.
and to my dear sweet Boston... my precious little girl... you melt my heart...
because you so willingly share your kisses & loves and stop everything you are doing and walk a great distance just to give me a (open mouthed) kiss, because you really have a distinct personality & make me laugh every day when you are being stubborn, because you are my little fireball and because you are my daughter...
you are so interactive and want all my attention and some days this is hard to get stuff done but today I didn't care about the stuff. i just cherished you wanting me...
and oh your curls. you have the most gorgeous natural curls that make me giddy inside...
and because I finally, after a year of trying, got a good picture of your beautiful bluish-gray- green eyes and because if i zoom in close i can see my reflection in them. Because you truly are a blessing to my life...

...today I held you both a little tighter, a little longer, and more often. i let the house go. i let work go. i let my personal needs go. and today I feel overwhelmed with happiness to be your mother and to be in your life, today. I love you both to the moon and back. -mom
