Sometimes I look at my family and my breath literally catches.

I can’t believe that in a manner of speaking,  they belong to me.

I birthed those children.  I married that man.

I really am blessed beyond measure or lucky beyond belief.

  27. Great picture.

    Hsppy WW!

  28. You really are one lucky woman!

  29. That photo is precious, Angie. And I feel the same way about my husband and kids. Just tonight, I sat in bed with my daugther (who is now almost eleven) and we talked for about an hour… just about stuff. After I got back downstairs, I thought to myself, “I wonder how many more years of that I’ll get to do.” I hope many.

    Loved this post.


  30. It is an amazing feeling. I get it at times too. 🙂

  31. Thats a wonderful feeling, you are really blessed.

  32. You definitely are blessed. I still look at the girls sometimes and get an overwhelming feeling of love and happiness. And I cannot believe they are mine. What did we do to get so lucky? 🙂

  33. Every Monday i talk about Motherhood. Isn’t it amazing when you think about it. My stories have actually been taken out of my scrapbook documentation!

  34. I know how you feel. I’ve often thought that and feel so lucky as well.

    Gorgeous shot! Happy WW!

    You have a BEAUTIFUL family!

  74. What a great picture! Sometimes I feel the same way – I just look at my son and think… “wow, I don’t have to give him back, I get to keep him!” It just makes me want to hug him even harder then!

  75. What a beautiful sentiment…I think I am going to put this one my pictures to take list…although my kid’s would probably be all over the place. 🙂 Happy WW!!

  76. That’s a beautiful shot! The caption of “MINE” summs up every mother in the known universe I think, lol so good choice. (Also reminded me of the BDB – if you’ve read those books, fiercly protective & willing to kill anyone who so much as LOOKS funny at their “MINE”)
    Happy WW!

  77. You truly are blessed! Love that photo! This is my first time to participate in your meme. You have a great blog and I love the name! Thanks for hosting this

  79. Awesome photo! I know exactly what you mean. 🙂

  80. I feel the same way about my family at times. It’s amazing isn’t it? Sometimes it’s so surreal. I’m a wife and mother of four. How blessed am I? And how blessed are you!!!

    Hugs and blessings,

  87. Gorgeous picture. And I often feel the same way. Like, someone please pinch me!!

  88. That was just BEAUTIFUL!

  89. You are ‘seriously, so blessed’.

    Just found out an old HS classmate died of colon cancer. He only had 7 weeks, diagnosis to death. 6 kids. I’m crying all over again.

  90. Wow, I didn’t realize that you had 5 kiddos! I always wanted a larger family as did hubs – if only we would have met earlier. Beautiful shot! It made me smile for sure 🙂

  91. It boggles the mind, sometimes, doesn’t it?

  92. What a beautiful post!!

  93. u have a beautiful family. I often feel the same way 🙂

  94. You have a beautiful family.

  95. I love your pictures from the back… so moving.

  96. You certainly are blessed, and so am I!

  97. The picture does look out of a dream.

  98. Whew…slid in here under 100…

    And…you’re family picture doesn’t include umbrellas (which would certainly be the case if you were still in Portland)

  99. What a great picture and a great write-up to boot! You are too sweet!

    And wheee! Giveaways 😉

  100. You know that old saying… it’s not the number of breaths that you take, rather the number of moments that take your breath away. That’s it — those moments when we say — I don’t know how it’s mine but thank God it is!

    Here’s to enjoying our beautiful families!
