A Mother's Voice - Betsy

Please welcome Betsy to PIOW! Betsy (aka Bootsy, Boots, Booty) and I met while working for the Four Seasons in Atlanta. When we first met, we both had boyfriends that we now call husbands and children were no where to be found in our conversations during cocktails after work! Our friendship was solidified after Boots moved to Dallas and we started traveling together on sales trips. We thought we were back in college dorm life when we'd meet in one of our hotel rooms with snack trays, a bottle of wine, cheesy tv in the background and dissecting all things that had transpired since the last time we'd seen each other. We'd then have our own personal bootcamp each morning before heading out for a long day of client schmoozing. Betsy is, without a doubt, one of the most positive and encouraging people I know. You leave a conversation with her feeling a little like Wonder Woman - no wonder I loved our long conversations! Now you might think I'm crazy for asking her to write something since she has three week old twin girls and a 2 1/2 year old but, Booty being Booty, sent in her thoughts. Thanks Betsy and I can't wait to give Molly, Maggie and Kate a big squeeze!

Being a Mom means......

Being a Mom means "Welcome to the Club" where you immediately unite and bond with others
Being a Mom means you love more deeply than you ever thought possible
Being a Mom means you now cry at Hallmark commercials and all TLC "Baby Story" programs
Being a Mom means you have been given the most amazing gift that God can possibly give
Being a Mom means it's the toughest job you'll ever love...and then there's the teenage years
Being a Mom means your a walking Birthday party- ready to sing and dance at a moments notice
Being a Mom means you are someone's entire world.......

Being a Mom.....is a honor and a joy. Someone once told me...the days are long...but the years are short...enjoy it while you have it. If you have ever heard the song "Your going to Miss this" by Trace Atkins...it truly sums it up. It's true....we will miss these days.
