My New Life

I watched this video that has been made by my church last night. Stephanie's story is one I have followed for a long time now, I felt like she was already my friend when she had the accident. One of the things I love about blogging is it makes the world feel smaller, I have found and remembered that good people are all around us to inspire us and strengthen us. As I watched last night I was reminded that my motherhood is such a privilege. I am a little ashamed to admit that my kids annoy me sometimes. Sometimes they seem like an interruption to what I am trying to accomplish at that moment. Stephanie reminds me to treasure each moment. So this Mother's Day week I am really going to try to hug more, scold less and be the mom I want them to remember in their childhoods.

Wow! She is so amazing! I have been so touched by her example! We are so much more than we understand. We are real spirits here for a little while. I am trying harder to make the most of the moments of my life because of her! Beautiful! Thanks for sharing it. I hadn't seen it yet.

You are such a great mom. I wish every child could have a mom just like you.

What a great idea! Instead of viewing mothers weeks as a time to be worshipped by your fam, turn it around to make it about them! You have inspired me! Way to go woman!
