Today, exactly two years from the worst day of my life, my second born said "Mama" for the first time.

I know some people believe things like that are a happy coincidence and some people believe things like that are gifts from above (I'll let you guess which I am), but I think all mothers will agree that hearing those words from your child's lips are heavenly.

 I am so thankful for the life of the little boy who made me worthy of such a wonderful sound in the first place.  For his sake, and his sister's, I hope I always live up to the name.


  1. so happy for you to experience that sweet moment, Anne—I can only imagine how wonderful that name sounds :)

  2. How wonderful. Such a hard day, I know. Glad Grace knows just when her Mama needs extra love.
