Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!

I am so wonderfully blessed to have a sweet, caring, godly example for a mother. She has always been there for me, lovingly caring for me however and whenever I needed it.

Now that I'm a mother, I can more fully appreciate what she went through to raise me in the way that she did.

So . . . thank you Mom! I am most thankful for you introducing me, at a young age, to Jesus Christ. He is the Savior of my life and I can't imagine living without Him!

I am also thankful for your involvement in my life, encouraging my interests and encouraging me to grow in areas where I needed to!

Thank you, Mom, for being a wonderful grandmother. For caring for us, even if we're far away. You're always there to take my calls and listen to my problems and offer advice. You're hands on and so wonderful with my kids when you're close by!

Here is my sweet mother with my sweet daughter!

P.S. I had a lovely mother's day - mostly thanks to my husband. I really feel strongly that mother's day should be about celebrating your own mother and not the husband celebrating the wife. However, my kids are little and need help so I appreciate what he did to make it wonderful. He made us breakfast, tilled my garden, stayed with the kids while I went shopping, went and picked up yummy mexican food for dinner, and made me a fresh lava cake for dessert! I'm stuffed!

P.P.S. I have so many posts swimming around in my head including: chicago trip recap, Abigail's adventures, Elsie's first taste of solid food (today!), Elsie's dedication at church today, and some more recipes so stay tuned!

Thank you, Jaime, for that wonderful tribute. I'm glad our adolescent hassles are behind us. I'm amazed at how well our children "turned out" in spite of having imperfect parents.

Love, Mom
