There are three reasons I am so lucky! Their names are Joel, Bryan and Bethany. They are the best part of my life. I love each of them madly. I am beyond proud of each of them. That I have three adult children that are wonderful, loving people-life doesn’t get better.
Each of them is unique. My life would not be the same with out them. Each one adds so much to my life. Joel lives in Seattle. I don’t get to see him enough. He works hard, loves without condition. He is the oldest. I am so happy he is mine, and I am proud to be his mother.
Bryan lives her in Missoula. He is adventurous. I am blessed to share my apartment with him. He works hard at his job, and is curious. He is intelligent, and studies anything that interests him. He brews really good beer. I love his outlook on life, he is honorable. I love him with my whole heart. I can’t believe how happy, proud I am to be his mother.
Bethany lives in Whitefish. She loves travel and adventure. She is a nurse, working in an ER. I love her to death. She is the third in line. As the only daughter with 2 older brothers, her growing up was not that of a pampered princess. She learned to take care of herself, but remained tender hearted.
As I sit here typing this, I can’t begin to share all of the memories of each of them that are coming up. They flood my heart with joy and happiness. I loved the little ones they were, and admit I often miss those little ones. I have a list of ways I wish I had been a better mother, but there is no list of how they could have been better children.
I treasure each of them as adults. They add so much richness to my life. I am unceasingly proud of each of them. I don’t have the words to express it, but I wanted to record it.
