I am wife to a magnificent man and mother to five wonderful children. Three of my children were born in the Northwest and two were born thousands of miles away in Liberia, West Africa. Birthplace is no matter, all of my children were born in my heart. This is our journey.

Clean up in the jewelry aisle!

Today, the kids and I were Christmas shopping in the mall while their daddy was at the dentist close by. As I pushed four year old Lij's stroller by the jewelry counter he asked me to stop so he could look at the cases. I let him out as this was a reasonable request and I was curious about what he wanted to look at. He inspected the ruby section for a few seconds and then exclaimed "Look! Look!", so I leaned in to look. He stopped suddenly, held up his hand to me and said "Wait. Don't look. It's a birthday present."

And right there in the store, I left my heart in a puddle.
