Since having a baby, the way I see my mom has changed. I understand more, realize things looking back that I didn't see at the time. I'm sure as Káel gets older those epiphanies will only continue to happen. Not saying that I didn't appreciate her before, because I totally did, it's just different. I relate to her heart now on a different level and I love it. My grid of thankfulness for and to her has been drastically enlarged to say the least. haha. 

My mom is so wonderful. She's an amazing mom, a freaking gorgeous woman, an incredible friend and a heart that I know I can go to any time I need to. Next to Sam, she's my favorite person in the world to laugh with and to me, that is one of the biggest compliments you can give. Growing up, never, not for one second did I ever question the fact that I was loved unconditionally. She's been there for me, with me, through everything and always instilled in me the reality that I could do anything if I really wanted to. I'm SO looking forward to being able to lavish love on Káel the way she did and does with me. The cherry on top is that she is one heck of a grandma...the best. I love you momma. You are beautiful, and all things wonderful.

    I'm Rebekah, and I live in Dallas! Utah has my roots, but Texas has my heart.

    Your post about your Mom made me teary. My Mother passed 3 years ago and I can't imagine knowing just how much she loved me... I know it was tremendous, unconditional love.. but I'll know this love when I hold my own baby one day. You wrote this so well.. just lovely.

    Make it a great evening!
