Happy Anniversary

Today, Hubby and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary!  In our 28 years we have seen many joys and heartaches.  We have been through three loss of income, but God saw to each and every need and we never went without.  We have been through several illness--one that left Hubby very sick and off work for almost three months.  We have seen the birth of 14 children and cried at the loss of two.  We have watched 3 babies grow in the NICU when they should have been growing inside of me.  We watched as God gave us back our youngest son when he coded at home and no life was in him--and we were not sure if he would be "okay".  (Today he is 150% boy and a year ahead in school!)  We have graduated six of fourteen children from home school and have seen three of their college graduations.  We watched one child "swear in" to the Army and cried all the way home and for days afterwards!  We watched the same child graduate from boot camp. We have seen three out of four of our children married. We rejoice in the birth of our grandchildren and the two that are "on the way".

 I could go on and on, but this would turn out to be a book!  Life has not been easy in the last 28 years, marriage is hard work...but it has been worth it. 

Thanks Hubby for 28 wonderful years!

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!
