July 3, 2013 was a very meaningful day for me. My eldest son Nicholas Brett Martin was married to a wonderful girl who I'm so happy to call my daughter now! And my niece had baby twins!

Just before his nuptials, he pulled me aside and gave me a gift. It was a beautiful necklace. A circle surrounding a heart in the middle. With a quote written around the circle on the outside by Charlotte Gray. It read " Children and Mothers never truly part-Bound by the beating of each others heart"

I think it's so beautiful. I'm such a lucky mom to have two amazing sons. And now an added daughter! Life is good!
