One Last Thought on Mother’s Day…

And more important than you can ever know. I love you.

Just a note of thanks to everyone on Mother’s Day and I hope you all had a very special day with both your own mothers and your children if you have them.  Both are the most special blessings as the bond is one that is never truly broken and no matter where you are today, remember you have the gift of  loving and being loved beyond measure even if those you love are separated from you by distance physically or emotionally or if they are longer with us.

For my own mom and my children, I love you Mom and E & Q.  Thank you for being a wonderful mom and thank you Q and E for giving me the greatest gift of my life, to be your mommy.  Mother’s Day is truly a gift in that I get to experience it because of you.

To my babies, here is a little love letter poem I wrote for you (warning: I am no Dr. Seuss, and you may find this terribly embarrassing one day, but as your mommy, I get that right, just wait until your weddings, I have already started the naked picture slide shows:))…

To E & Q ~

For all your laughs and all your giggles

For all your strength and all your wiggles

For hope and fear and faith and tears

And joy and love beyond my years

Through destiny and fate your souls found mine

And now our hearts are forever intertwined.

I cannot say what our future holds

Or how your lives will unfold

But rest assured as you close your eyes each night

That mama loves you with all her might.

Love, Mama, Mother’s Day 2011

Thank you for my second  mother’s day E & Q Thank you for hanging on, fighting through and being my little survivors. And thank you to my wonderful husband KSP for helping to make it such a special day.  I love you all.

And love to you all for all of your support with this blog and making this mommy feel very special on this day and everyday.

Love, Shannon

About Shannon Pruitt from 'Mynewfavoriteday'

Welcome to 'mynewfavoriteday. This space is about gratitude and connecting through being open, vulnerable and real. I hope you will enjoy my take on motivation, inspiration and advocacy and will take the opportunity to tell me of your own thoughts and stories. Why I started 'mynewfavoriteday.' I am a childhood surviving, divorced, now happily married, IVF (and now natural pregnancy) success story, working mother of 2 amazing babies who were born 12 weeks premature. As life often seems to surprise you when you least expect it, we added another sweet baby girl M to our family in July of 2013. While our angel minis, Q and E are now 7 years old, our son, Q, has thrived while our daughter, E, has had a much more difficult journey. She is considered special needs and in September of 2012 was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Angelman Syndrome. And so, as she has grown, so do we as individuals and as family. How to help her, how to celebrate our differences while allowing ourselves to cope with the challenges that we never knew to expect. Thus, while much of this blog is based on our experiences (good and not-so-good), it is also based on how we must not let ourselves become victims of our circumstances but rather advocate in our own lives. A little bit about me and who I am. In my professional life I am a marketer in the Entertainment Industry; however, ‘mynewfavoriteday,’ was not born of entertainment or marketing but rather as a pathway to help myself and others as we try to define who we are as parents, family members, spouses, friends, colleagues and people. I believe in never judging a book by its cover. Every cover is different, and no matter what your cover looks like, you never know how someone's book is written. Like mine. From the outside, you might never know what truly makes me who I am or what I believe. This blog explores the pages on the inside of my book. My vulnerabilities, fears, happiness, and all my triggers through the lens of being grateful for all the amazing blessings I know I have received but sometimes forget in the challenges of daily life. Thanks again for dropping by. I hope you will come back, subscribe, comment, share, and/or just hang out and be inspired or motivated to make each day for yourself or someone else 'anewfavoriteday.' By being here, you have certainly helped to make it mine. xo, Shannon
