I love being a mother. From that moment in the delivery room to this moment where Justin pressed Haley into a beautiful lift during the Grand pas de deux, I felt what only a parent can feel when we see our child soar. I have felt pure moments of Gratitude towards motherhood even in the midst of the daily discipline, daily routine and goodnight kisses. Haven't you? We look at our children knowing what it has taken, or will take, to make them soar. My goodness, this is a beautiful life. As 2008 winds to a close I'm so grateful for the beauty it held.
