    Being a Mom

    I was told at a very young age that for me to have a child it may take some "work." As in, infertility issues. As I walked through life my dream of having a baby drizzled away with each step. At age 28, I married my best friend of 11 years. It was amazing to feel so...

    Contrary to what everyone will tell you,

    being a mom is the best job in the world. I have 3 daughters 17, 15 and 12 and I can honestly say we are all best friends. They are funny, cute, respectful and true joys to be around. My 17 yr old is now engaged and I love her fiancé as much as I love my own kids.

    As I have said before,

    I have been married twice and have 5 wonderful and beautiful children. Being a mom is my true calling for a lifetime. If I had more money, in the family, I would have been pregnant and barefoot for as long as I could be. I love kids so much and want to love and raise them.

    I do love being a Mom.

    My youngest just came in the room and wanted to go on a 'food hunt'. I was told that they were hungry. Well since I'm trying to be healthy they were disappointed to find that there was no junk food in house. Got mad at me. I got mad at myself because I really wanted...

    that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
