WHAT IS LOVE TO YOU?
To me, love is the opposite of selfishness. Love is sacrifice, selflessness, putting someone's needs 100% above your own.
THE MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT IN MOTHERHOOD?
There are a few memorable moments that have stuck with me so far, moments when I connected so deeply with my daughter that it's hard to even put into words. But the most memorable moment is when Ever was just born, it was sometime in the morning before the sun had come up. I was running off adrenaline and endorphins, though I desperately needed sleep. My husband was asleep on the pull-out couch across the hospital room, and I held my freshly born sleeping babe in my arms. I began to sing to her the song I sang to her throughout my whole pregnancy.. "Oh, do you know we belong together..?" Then she opened wide her big brown eyes and looked deeply into mine as if to say "oh, it was you the whole time." Thinking about it still makes me tear up.
ENCOURAGING MESSAGE FOR YOUR CHILDREN?
You are worth so much more than you could ever possibly imagine. Your value surpasses the most precious gem. Never sell yourself short. Also, I love you lots :)
