Thankful Day 29

I am thankful for a wonderful sister.  We spent the entire day together yesterday.  We went with my daddy and two brothers to make funeral arrangements for my mom.  We needed to pick out an outfit for her and my sis ended up getting some new outfits also.  We had a "family" lunch, daddy and the four siblilngs.

It was a hard day, but God's grace saw us through.

Just a side note, I called home to have one of the older daughters start supper.  Son #5, who is 15, said he would do it.  So I gave him step by step instructions on reheating turkey and making stuffing-from a box :)-hoping no one would ask for gravy.  Ah, but without fail Son #6, my gravy boy, asked for gravy.  So with careful instructions I walked Son #5 through making gravy from scratch.  Guess what--he did it and the family enjoyed it!!!  It really was pretty good!  Way to go Son! 

Sister, I am thankful for a day together doing just what sisters should do...leaning on each other.

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!
