Happy Birthday My Love!

Today is my dear sweet Husband's Birthday. He is 36 years old! He is always a baby to me since I am the cougar! I am four years older than he is. Age is only a number, right? Today I celebrate him for everything he is. He is a wonderful father and husband. My best friend, confident, and sometimes the biggest pain in my butt! But, I would never want to know what life would be like without him. He has blessed me with two wonderful step-sons. And two beautiful children Nico and Abbie. My life is so rich and full because of you sweetheart. I know times are rough sometimes, but WE always make it through...together. And through life, that is the way we will handle life's up and down's...together. I celebrate you today, because on this day, God brought into this world one of the greatest people he ever created. One of the most kind hearted, caring, loving, soft spoken, gentle hearted souls ever seen. Today, my love, is your day and I hope you take it and enjoy it sourrounded by all you have accomplished. Your four beauiful, healthy children, a wife that admires you more than anyone else in the world and a family that loves you so very much. Today my love, we celebrate you because there is no one else on earth quite like you. And I am so very blessed you chose me to share this life with you. Happy, Happy Birthday my dear sweet Love. I love you with all of my heart and soul. Shannon

The art of Parenting...

Why is it that sometimes we catch ourselves in a moment when we think about things into the future and it causes us to bawl? Just today after my son came home from spending the night at his grandpa's house, I was watching him and his sister hug and kiss all over each other. Apparently they missed each other. It melts my heart to see them so loving towards each other. I instantly start playing the song "Then they do" by Trace Adkins. I started to cry thinking, WOW, my son is going to be 5 years old in two months and my baby girl is a year and a half. Where on earth does the time go? Seriously, next month I register my son for Kindergarten, YES, it's here already! I can't believe it! I look at the boys and see how they have grown in the 7 years I have been with my husband. David was almost 3 and Jake was 1 1/2 when I started dating Dave. Now David is going to be 10 next month and Jake will be 9 in July. It's amazing how you can love someone else kids like they are your own. I never thought I could. Our family is so special to me. I want my husband to know that I will never take him or our family for granted. Not now, not ever. Thank you for letting me be a part of your life, and most of all, Thank you for making me a mom to the two most beautiful children EVER! I LOVE YOU!!!!

New Friends

I am dedicating this post to my new friend Megan. She has a blog called "Daughter of Mary". The reason I am dedicating this post to her is because she became my first follower. I do not have a prize for her nor an all expense paid vacation, however, if I could afford it, I probably would because I have been blogging for quite sometime now, and seems like no one is really interested, so I started slacking off. I tried to tell myself I would do it for me, so I could keep a little on-line "journal", but it got to be too much. Especially when no one bothered to read it. So, when I commented on Megan's blog and she responded by commenting on mine, and becoming a follower, I was estatic! She gave me the incenitive I needed to get back on track. Thank you my new friend, Thank you God, for new friends. You must know when to send them! I owe you one!!!
