Too Cute!

Children are so precious!  In the mix of the morning getting school underway, our 5 1/2 year old daughter leaves her desk and comes to me in the kitchen.  She has taken her sweater off and tells me her "nostrils are cold".  Trying not to laugh, I pull her into my lap and rock her.  After loving on her a few moments, I plug her nose and tell her if she breathes out her mouth her "nostrils will not be cold any more"!  She breathes out her mouth and is off to her desk!  Now to tell the truth, her nose was not cold!  I think she was just looking for a little extra lovin' and a wee break from school!!  Kindergarten is very hard you know!  (She had to learn how to make a cursive "f" today.) 

Being a mother is the hardest job I have ever had!  Actually, it's the longest job I have ever  had!   After 25 years of mothering, you think I may have found an easier way of doing the job.  But there is nothing easy about raising children, nor are there any shortcuts!  I am thankful that I have a wonderful husband that helps, and a God who is forgiving when I make mistakes!  Even though I get very little time to myself or a date with hubby, it is the greatest job on earth!  I also think I have the greatest children on earth!  Now, if you have children of your own, you are off the hook if you think you children are the greatest!:-)  After all, we, the parents of these wonderful creatures, are the best cheerleaders they can have!  

God is so good!

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!
