I am blessed to have this amazing opportunity that so few mothers get to have. To carry two babies at one time is truly an extraordinary and amazing experience that you cannot possibly know unless you have done it. While it was completely miserable most of the time, I knew that the unique experience of feeling two little humans rolling around inside of me was special and to be treasured. I can still remember precisely what they felt like inside of me and I pray that I will never forget that.
While mothering twins is no walk in the park and it is by far, the most challenging task I've ever been given in this life, it is a most special gift to be given these two children to watch them grow. The bond between twins is an incredible force like nothing I've ever seen before. Some days they make me want to pull my hair out, or down an entire bottle of wine, but I wouldn't trade this experience and the gift of being their mother for anything in the world.
So happy 4th birthday to my beautiful twin daughters, Heather Lauryn & Hannah Grace, official deliverers of the cape!
