WHAT IS LOVE TO YOU?
Love is understanding, even when you don't want to. Compromise and compassion. I don't think it starts and ends at a feeling. It takes work and a choice to not give up, no matter what it takes. It takes lowering your pride and apologizing, even if you don't want to. It's hard and wonderful and exciting. And it's such a lovely thing to experience.
THE MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT IN MOTHERHOOD?
My baby is only three months old and as cliche as it sounds, all his little moments are so memorable to me. We weren't expecting a little so fast in our marriage but it has been the most exciting, challenging, and life changing experience we have ever had. Seeing the light and life in his eyes is the most encouraging thing. Hearing him trying to laugh. Seeing him smile as he recognizes me. When he first rolled over. All the things!
ENCOURAGING MESSAGE FOR YOUR CHILDREN?
To always be yourself. To never stray from what you stand for. To always be kind to others and to never let anyone feel less than themselves. To never have to explain why they are who they are and to stand confident in that.
