Makenna one of my biggest Inspirations

My daughter has got to be one of my biggest inspirations. She lets nothing get in the way of what she wants to achieve. I want her to know that whatever decisions she makes throughout life, I will stand behind her.

Recently I have been talking with a friend about all of the issues I had throughout my pregnancy with Makenna and then the horrible delivery. I am not going to go into details and most of you already know. The worst part is going through all of that after losing a baby. Maybe that is why I look at Makenna the way I do. I feel so blessed to have her. It makes me sad to know that on the 13th she will already be 3 years old. My hopes for her and I are that we can be best friends as she gets older. Already we have a very strong relationship.

One of my customers has a very strong relationship with her daughter and I completely admire that. My mom and I used to butt heads but now we get along very well. I want Makenna to feel that she can tell me anything, even the things that I really do not want to know. You know what I mean...
On Monday, we make it beauty day since I have off. If she needs a haircut I will cut her hair or style it. I always paint her toes and her finger nails. This past Monday she picked red for her toes and blue for her fingers. Maybe she is feeling patriotic? Mondays are a great day for us to spend together. She loves to help me clean and do laundry and work in the yard. When she has to go to work with me, she is very into doing craft projects. As I am typing this she is putting on her lip gloss...LOL!

I am so lucky to have such affectionate children. Makenna especially loves to hug and kiss and express her love for everyone. It is so endearing to hear her tell me that she loves me.

What I am thankful for today..
my kids
their health
their expressions
their love
their joy
their laughter
their silliness
their strength
that they are mine!
