I was outside doing some yardwork today when Kate came out with a tray, and some apple slices she'd asked Eric to cut up for her. She invited me to join her for a picnic on the front lawn. We marvelled at the trees, the sun, and the fact that snow would once again soon cover the ground where we sat. She asked me to tell her stories about what life was like for her as a baby in Scotland. Then she looked at me and said, "Mommy, you're my joy."
Just a little example of why, despite the sacrifices and hardships of motherhood, almost every mother will say, "But it's so worth it." I want to make sure to cherish moments like this.
