complete



the most i could ever hope for
my heart's desire
always
to enjoy each other

to really truly care
show up
sacrifice
delight in

a mother's dream
my fondest wish
always to be friends
come true

For some reason I never really processed the fact that you and Jer do indeed have eight children!! Must be that I'm now a mother myself and the thought is... well...amazing! A quiver full of children! No greater blessing. Loved watching you play the organ today. You're a great example of motherhood to me Cristie. You have always loved it, embraced, joyed in it. I want to be like you. Love you!
