 Mother's Day!  and I couldn't be more filled with reasons to be grateful!
 It is amazing to "become" a mother.  Your kids actually birth you into motherhood in the same moment that they birth themselves into being.
 I began my day with a walk at a nearby lake and preserve and here are a few gifts along the path.
 And then the boys and I planted the front beds and...
 the back beds of our little home.  It was a ton of labor and well worth every bead of sweat!
What a gift...this thing called MOTHERHOOD.  It challenges me daily to be the best of myself and to look honestly at the worst of myself.  I couldn't ask for two better teachers than Owen and Bodhi!
