Ever since taking these pictures a few days ago, the song “You light up my life” has been playing in my head. The song was originally a (romantic) love ballad, but other artists have used it as a religious love song (See Wikipedia). My little darlings keep me grounded during difficult times.
For most of my life, I wanted to be a mother. The first verse of the song contains the words, “So many dreams I’ve kept deep inside me. Alone in the dark but now you’ve come along.” This is how I felt when I finally held my beautiful baby boy in my arms. I repeated this awe when my precious angel girl was born.
One of my husband’s sayings is “I’m so bright my mama called me son” – Both our son and daughter are the brightest stars in our lives.
