The Greatest Impact

So many people/things have made an enormous impact on my life. The first thing that came to mind was my faith. I know I wouldn't be who I am without my Savior. He has always been a part of my life, and always will be. I could go on and on about the role Jesus Christ has played in my life, but I wanted to focus on someone else that has greatly affected my life. I do this because 1) I haven't really known what life was like before my faith, and 2) I wanted to choose something that changed my life more than I could have imagined.

Cue this little guy:

When Brady came into my life, I never knew how completely and unconditionally you could love someone/something. I thought I loved my husband that way (and I really do!), but knowing that little helpless child was completely dependent upon me made me realize that there were more important things in this world. I now had a major purpose in life: I lived to make a life for him where he could be healthy, happy, and have a life knowing he was someone very special. He just turned 5 a few days ago, and I can't imagine life without him. He makes me want to be a better person, not just a better mom. I'm very lucky to be his mommy.
