Cue the Emotional PBS Music....

The greatest insight I have gained since becoming a mother is the following:

"Count your blessings. Take nothing for granted. There are people who would give anything to comfort their crying baby, wake up at 5 am to play, deal with a cranky toddler or a sassy teenager because they no longer have their child with them."

I am having an emotional day today (greatly attributed to the return of Aunt Rose)....and when that happens I feel compelled to write so bear with me.

I am thankful for the aforementioned insight because it has been the most wonderful gift. I will take Lara at her crankiest because it means she is with is a wonderful reminder when you start to get frustrated...

So count your blessings today.....even if they are crabby :)
