I love being a mom. It's by far the greatest gift God ever gave me, but it's certainly not easy. Sometimes it's incredibly stressful, but it's so worth it.
Last night, Mother's Day-eve, we did something a little different to kick-off Mother's Day - we spent the evening in the ER! Marley was playing on the playground, and had just started coming down a ladder, when her hands slipped and she fell backwards. Her right foot, however, stayed put, lodged in between the rungs of the ladder. When she bounced back up for a second, her foot came loose and she fell about 8 feet down to land flat on her back. We thought her foot was broken, but thank God, she's fine. Not even a sprain!
Taking her heart rate at check-in
Checking out her x-ray - No breaks!
Marley got a cool new bracelet! LOL!
But, in the end, through good times and bad, happy and sad, it's all worth it. Every tear to wipe dry, every boo-boo to kiss, every handcrafted gift that I just have to keep forever, every mess to clean, every tangle to comb through....I wouldn't trade one ounce of this life God has blessed me with. I love you Marley! Thank you for the best 9 years of my life! Love, Mom XOXO
