My Finest Contribution...

No matter what I write, how well it is or isn't received, whatever accolades may be forthcoming or completely ignored, will never compare to the gift of being granted the immense privilege of being known as "Mom" by Justin and Katie. I can't imagine what my life might have been like without them. Let's just say it's been an adventure. It still is.

YES! There have been times I have felt like tearing large tufts of my hair out (there still are!). YES! I have now and again wanted to scream in frustration by some action they have taken in spite of my loudest protestations (I still do!), but when the scores are tallied, the positives leave the negatives in the dust. Most days. OK, more than half the time.

Hey, I could have done worse, right?

Thank you Justin and thank you Katie, for teaching me so much along the way, and reminding me that it all shakes out in the end, eventually.

Well, most days, right?

Needless to say, these two not only have my heart...they are my heart. It should also be noted that they know exactly how to take advantage of that fact, and still do on a continuing basis.

These two really do make me proud.

More times than not.

I love you both.
