Mom of Triplets
I am a mom of triplets. Sometimes that thought amazes me. It is almost like it is unreal, even though I carried them inside me for 36 weeks and have taken care of them every day since they were born. Still, sometimes the thought can be almost dream-like. Even though there are days were 7pm (bedtime) can not come fast enough because it has been so exhausting or just a really bad day.
Even though I have so much guilt about not having enough arms to hold them all, all the time. Even though there are times where I just want to sit down and cry with them. Even though… I would not trade this for anything in the world. To have the privilege to watch these little people develop into their own personalities. To watch them grow into teenager, then adults. To be able to hug them every morning and love them every moment. To see them take their first steps, say their first words, discover something new about the world for the first time… No, I could never ask for a more precious gift. I have everything I could ever want… I have two, almost grown, wonderful children. I have had the opportunity to have children with my husband. My husband got to have his first children. I was blessed to have three little ones. Fortune has smiled upon us in that they have been healthy and well thus far. No, I could never ask for a more precious gift. Some days are not easy, and that is life, but the good times out weigh the bad. The smiles make the tears fade out. The laughter overshadows all the cries. The love I have for them makes every moment, good or bad, a precious one to hold on to. Everyday I am thankful and every moment I am blessed. I am a mom of triplets.
