Something that amazes me and I can't quite wrap my head around yet is the power I have being Ryan's Mommy. If he cries at night, just my presence is sometimes enough to comfort him. I still have a hard time believing that I mean so much to someone. I always knew that moms have a special connection with their children, but being one of the moms is so amazing. When he is upset, hurt, tired, etc. he wants me. Even if I can't heal all boo-boos or take away illness, I can make him feel better. There is something so powerful about being a mother.
