I am Momma

And I am beyond grateful. I had Spencer when I was a teenager, and he grew up with me. That experience was excruciating at times, when I would be faced with failure or fear, but without him in the perfect moment in time, I might not even be here. And that is the truth. I praise God that He made me be a mommy and that he allowed me to be a mommy, even at such a young age.

I have said it a thousand times and ya'll are tired of hearing it, but Asher and Shawn could not be more delicious. It is difficult to even type this because my heart is pounding so hard and my eyes are struggling to see around water welling up and glazing over my eyeballs. If I swallowed right now, the entire neighborhood would hear me. I am ecstatic to have my children. I have never deserved them. God has given me many second chances. My opportunities are Asher and Shawn. I know that they are not mine forever. They are on loan from our great Father. I can have them for as long as they are here and under my wing, or for as long as I am here. If I'm blessed in kingdom proportions, Shawn will grow old with me. However it goes down, on the last day of my life.......if I get to go out shouting, I will be shouting about Spencer, Asher, and Shawn.

I am Momma.

Happy Mother's Day to every incredible mother that I know. Hi Mom!
