Life is ever-changing and bad things happen...but good things happen too! The good things give us hope; the bad things make us grow. We cling to the good things during the bad times; that is why good things are so precious. Owen is a good thing. He is precious. He is a blessing. I have grown so much this year, but I am so full of hope. I can't hold out for the future when there is so much to enjoy in the present. I have been challenged this year to not take time for granted: be healthy TODAY, be happy TODAY, enjoy the small things...yes, even running errands and cleaning my house. Owen, I promise to sing to you, dance with you, skip every once in awhile, and do cartwheels for as long as my body will let me. I hope I never wish time away because look how fast this one year went! Happy Birthday, little boy! I love you sooooooo much!

I believe Motherhood is the best gift God grants us! It is wonderful to hear your transformation as a mother--and a wonderful mother you are!!
big hugs and we'll be in the states in under one week!!
