2 Wonderful Things 2 Day!

I need to say Happy Graduation to Son #3 and Happy Birthday to Grandson #1!!!

Today, Son #3 graduates from college with his degree in respiratory therapy.  Way to go Son!  I know it has been a challenge for him, since he worked full time while going to school.  He knew nine years ago when we had our first preemie, born at 28 weeks, that this is what he wanted to do!  He also  has a job waiting for him and one of our local hospitals!  To top it off, he and his lovely bride, of almost three years, are buying their first home and will move in about a month!  Guess who gets to host family holiday's this year?!?!?

Today also marks birthday number six for Grandson #1!  Yippee Grandson!  To top his year, he graduates from Kindergarten, from the Christian School his dad and some of his aunts and uncles attended, and Paw-Paw was principal at, {before we came back home to school} towards the end of this month!

Of course tomorrow is Mother's Day, and those that are able will come home for some homemade beef stew.  Usually Mother's Day is one of the four days a year we buy fried chicken.  But this year there is no extra $$ for that. {seven months with no paycheck sure takes the fun out of life:)}    That is okay with me, I love to cook, and don't mind putting the two hands that God gave me into making something wonderful and fullfilling for my "little" family!  After all, I am the mother and this is my job!  I LOVE IT!!!

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!
