Once Upon a Sketch - May 1 Challenge

All I have ever wanted, apart from a very short time when I considered becoming a nun, is to be a wife and mother. I was fortunate to meet a wonderful man and five years later we married and began thinking about starting our family. We announced the pregnancy of our first son on our first anniversary and his three brothers followed in the next 6 years. Their Dad and the boys are all I have ever wanted and I have been very blessed.
They were active, healthy little boys brought up to a faith, a large extended family and with community responsibility. They have not given us a moments concern in regard to drugs and drinking, have always held down good jobs and are all now married with little families of their own.
I couldn't have done it without their wonderful Dad and we are so very proud of all of them, cherish every single moment we have with them and feel blessed that they now include us in the lives of our grandchildren.
I love and adore them and couldn't be happier being their Mum.
Thank you for looking and any comments you may leave, best wishes.
