Being a Mama

I'm thinking a lot today about how blessed I am to be a Mama.

It actually overwhelms me at times just how much I love them. I feel it all over me, like today, when Colin walked up to me and reached his arms up for me to hold him and rested his head on my chest. To know that you're someone else's comfort and safe place is a beautiful gift, and it's one that I don't always appreciate as much as I should.

I am so fortunate to witness the little moments that are passing by as they both grow.
Moments like a little bit ago, when Katie was showing me the "tight rope" she'd built out of blocks, or when she and I color together and she says "you're the best Mama in the whole earth, ever!"

Being a witness to their lives is beautiful.

I want to be a better mother each day. :)
