A Sweet Soul

Two years ago I met one of the best friends I have ever had. It was purely by chance that we met, but I treasure our friendship more than she will ever know. As a new mom I was coming into my own in this world as the person I had always dreamed of being, a mom at last! I always knew I wanted to be a mommy; it is the only thing I was ever passionate about. Then as my son was placed in my arms, I was the happiest girl in the world. But, then what, I had thought about how I would love and hug on my babies for the past twenty-two years, but there is so much more to being a mom and parent than that. Karen has taught me so much about all of the extra steps and the backbone pieces involved in rearing children. Everything from singing more to making sure they say their prayers every night to being the very best advocate I can be for them. She is always there for me when I need a laugh or an open ear. I don't even think she knows what all I have learned from her, but I certainly do and I thank God that she is in my life each day.
