Mother Warriors

My two greatest gifts - Peyton and Trace.  God chose me to be their mother and for that I will forever be grateful.  They have brought endless joy, love and happiness to my life.  They are my everything. 

Peyton is an amazing daughter, sister and friend.  I am so proud to be able to say that about my girl!  She is giving and caring and kind and beautiful.  She is a complete ball of energry and smiles.  I love her "to the moon and back"  and think I read that book to her at least a thousand times over her childhood.  I have only a few short years left with her under my roof, but will never be done being her mother.  I will make sure she continues to grow and become even better a person.  I can't wait to see what great things she accomplishes when she's All Grown Up

Trace is a brave, loving and resilient little boy.  He is an inspiration.  He has the most amazing smile.  I am so proud to have been chosen as his mother.  I hope to one day be able to teach him as much as he has taught me. He endures more on a daily basis than most could.  He is strong, courageous and never goes down without a fight.  I live everday to feel his skinny little arms wrapped around my neck - it is truly the best feeling.  I pray everday I may see him All Grown Up

I have chosen to be a warrior for both of my children.  The battles I fight for them are very different.  For Peyton I fight so that she may achieve everything she sets her mind to.  I have fought hard to make sure she has had the best life possible.  I fight to protect her from all the bad things & even worse people.  I have fought so she may learn to fight for herself.  For Trace I fight so that he may live the most normal life possible.  I fight for him to enjoy everyday.  I fight for a cure for Mitochondrial disease.  I fight for his life.  I hope to one day win.  I will never give up. 

They are my heart
Happy Mother's Day to all my fellow Mother Warriors ~

Hope, Love, Courage &Faith,
