Happy Mother's Day

Sending my love to all the Mommas out there this Mother's Day!

Being a mom is something I always knew I wanted to be. As a little girl, I dreamed of having a baby of my own to hold and love. Nearly eight years ago, I started my journey into motherhood. I knew it wouldn't be all sweet-smelling baby heads and chubby little baby feet. But what I didn't know then was that I would be chosen as a D-mama (and become part of this very special group of ladies)...which comes with some seemingly-impossible challenges, but also with the most amazing rewards!

Tonite, while reading Hallie's blog post on The Princess and the Pump, I came across a link to her Mother's Day post from last year. It includes one of my favorites, Erma Bombeck's story "How God Selects the Mother of a Diabetic Child"....definitely worth a click over to read it if you haven't come across this before. Each time I read it, it makes me stop and realize that we were indeed chosen for this position as "D-mama" because we possess a special set of qualities that help make this life work us (although somedays it may not feel that way).

Happy Mother's Day to each and every one of you!

And a special guest post by Charlotte:
