On Friday, January 13, 1984 at 7:13pm, I was blessed with the birth of my first born. She was beautiful as could be. I couldn’t have done better. The deliver was tough, it was come and go for a while. We both spent months in the hospital, but today, she is an amazing young woman.

One, Super Bowl Sunday, January 28, 1990 at 3:15pm, I was blessed with my second beautiful daughter. I was surprised as I had been told I wouldn’t be able to conceive again after the trauma of my first child and the multiple miscarriages. What can I say, god felt differently.

On Thursday, June 3, 1993 at 6:13pm after hours of walking the marble hospital floors trying to evict my two weeks late first son from my womb. He finally decided to grace us with his presence. I do thing I was ever in so much pain. I know right then, that after all that, I was getting my tubes tied as soon as I could. He was a solid 7lbs, 6oz with a head as big and round as it could be, but the smile on his face was unforgettable.

With tubes tied the good lord still saw fit to reward me with a beautiful set of twin daughters on Thursday, March 9, 2000 and my last prize of my 5th beautiful daughter who was born on Saturday, March 30, 2002 at 1:32 pm at which time my tubes were tied for a second time. Remaining grateful for all that I have.

I feel more than blessed to have given birth so many times and given the strength to raise them through all of our trials and tribulations.

I feel even further blessed to have been a part of so many other lives and act as a mother to many other children. Children have always warmed my heart and fill the emptiness that formerly resided in my heart. My heart is now content as all the pieces are In place.

I give my love to my children, to my husband, my family and friends and bless the life that we all have. I wouldn’t trade the past 30 years that I’ve been a mother for anything.

I’ve enjoyed every play, recital, soccer game, basketball game, trip to the pool, every beach, every vacation, every doctor’s appointment, and every time I was needed.

Thank you my children for being such a big part of my happiness.
