I have become a new person. A new woman. I understand the meaning of patience. I understand pain more than I ever did. I know what exhausted really feels like. I know the troubles of a struggling family… struggling relationship. The love that I know now is more than I could have ever imagined. I am the protector of these two little bears. One day they will grow big and strong and end up protecting me. I am there mama bear and always will be.
