I can't count how many posts similar to this one that I have done on here, but I just can't help it.
You can never be too thankful for the blessings God gives you in life, so I like to take the time and think about everything I have to be thankful for every day.
I thank my lucky stars every day for Connor and Merasia. I don't even remember what my life was like before they came into this world, and I don't care. I don't want to worry about my life then, or spend precious new moments thinking about those days. Some of them were nice, others...not so much. It was a time of intense struggle within myself, my marriage, and our trying to conceive journey. The moment that test turned positive, my life changed forever, and I was on a whole new high...a whole new journey.
Connor and Merasia make me thankful for so much. They remind me to take in the little moments, even the bad, frustrating, difficult times, because even those will be precious memories of the past all too soon.
Yes, they make me want to yell, scream, and pull my hair out at times. But in the next second, they make me smile, laugh, and cry tears of joy. My heart melts every time I look at them...every time a new milestone is reached...every time I hear Connor giggle as I tickle his belly...every time Frank takes Merasia out of her crib in the morning and she walks over to my side of the bed, lifts the blanket off my head, and says "Hi! Hi! Hi!" in her high pitched, girly, squealy morning voice.
Everyday is an adventure, but it's an adventure unlike any other, and I learn something new everyday and would not change one second of the life I have as Connor and Merasia's mama.
