It would be untrue to say that every mother feels blessed.
Sadly there are many reasons why that is not the case...be it for reasons of poverty or circumstance I know there are many babies who are not welcomed with happy thoughts.
I am fortunate that I did feel incredibly blessed when each of my little KAT's arrived.
That moment when they were first placed in my arms lives eternally in my heart. Each of them is a precious gift and they fill my life with love and meaning....I adore them.
Our oldest KAT is soon to turn eleven and is on the cusp of turning into a young woman. Our middle KAT is eight and a half and the resident tornado and our baby KAT is shortly to turn four with the attitude and sensibilities of a child at least twice her age...it must be a 3rd child thing I suppose!
They are so uniquely individual and yet alike at the same time. They have a sister bond that we nourish and reinforce and yet sometimes they rage against having to 'share' and co exist.
SM and I are blessed to have the chance to nurture them and help them grow into amazing women. I hope that we are fortunate to see that happen.
