My mom. You might have seen me post this image on my Instagram account the other day.
Although I didn’t have a lot growing up I definitely felt like I had it all. My parents were always so motivating. They encouraged me and my siblings to do everything we wanted to do and made us feel like even the impossible was possible. We knew that we could always depend on them for words of encouragement and support. When something didn’t go our way or when we felt disappointed about something they somehow knew how to make sense of everything, and turned even some of the negative things in life into positive and that always kept us going.
And now that I have my own family, I realize that I am now just like my parents. My family is the center of my life. I live for them and want to make sure my husband and my little ones always feel that love, and always feel that I am here for them. I can see that some of my own traditions with my family growing up are making its way to our life now. We have family dinner together everyday. There is no TV, no electronics, just mom, dad and kids, talking about the day and enjoying some time together. My 3 year old is a chatterbox, my almost 2 year old is just learning to talk, but she still joins in our conversations. 🙂
I work from home, so I am with my girls most of the time, unless of course I have to go on an on-location photo-shoot. My children are learning from me and my husband, first hand and learning our family values and for this I am grateful. We are a tight-knit bunch. My husband’s favorite thing to do is spend time with his family. And now that we’re expecting our 3rd little one, I can only imagine the closeness that is to come. 🙂
