This is James' ring that I just got.
I have one for each of my children. The stones represent the month in which they were born. Honestly, I'm not into the birthstone thing but when Jeremy gave me these I fell in love with them.
I wear them constantly. They remind me that I'm a mother, true blue, through and through. It is the hardest and best job out there. Just when you think you can't take it anymore your 2-year-old climbs up to cuddles with you. Or your 6 and 7-year-olds try to make a romantic dinner for you and dad. (They are making deviled eggs at this very moment) or your 7-month-old gives you the cheesiest grin as you walk past him to get the laundry. I have to stop for a moment from my busy life to remember that these moments that happen are gone as fast as they come. That they are fleeting. The phrase "this too shall pass" doesn't just apply to trial and bad times but to good times too. I need to cherish every moment, savor every "I love you", and adore every "mom, watch me".
Now excuse me, my adorable 2-year-old just woke up my rollie-pollie 7-month-old.....
I love being a mother!
