A New Week Begins!

Sunday is always the beginning of a new week for us.  Our day begins like most, but Sunday is a race to get 13 people out the door by 9 A.M. for church.  With one bathroom, it is divided up into 3 areas, it is a challenge to get a spot in the mirror.  Usually we squeeze 2 bigger bodies with one smaller one in between.  That does not always work out so well.  But, try having a hairdryer, curling iron and two flat irons plugged in and getting beautified!  Hair, arms, out!  Next, try not getting fingers tangled while doing 3 or 4 french braids!

Tomorrow will begin a normal school week.  It may take a day or two to get back in the swing of things after having 4 days off last week.  Some of the scholars will be studying extra hard, as they are having 9 week exams!  This makes it a little difficult for me, as I have to keep "noise to a minimum"!  That can be a challenge!  But, as I was reminded while reading another blog; "I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth." (Psalm 34:1)  I DO have a choice to praise.

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!
