Thankful Day 16

I am thankful for Daughter #7.  She is the caboose of our children.  She was born at 31 weeks.  My only preemie with no complication at all!  {I was on bed rest with her for seven weeks.}

She is very full of life.  She has the largest imagination and thinks she is a true princess.  Her daddy told her one day that all little girls are their daddy's princess.  So, she truly believes she is royalty, "because Daddy said so".  Watch out Princess Catherine! :-)   She decided when she was three that she wanted to grow out her hair to her ankles...she will be seven in December, so this was before "Tangled", and she never heard of Rapunzel.  Her hair is now about 5-6 inches above the back of her knees.  Will it get to her ankles??...we'll see.

I love you Daughter and I am thankful for you!

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!



Life on the Homestead

Life is keeping us busy.  We have had grans over, a couple family dinners, running teens to friends homes or a church activity. We are helping out a family friend who fell and broke a wrist. Now summer is in full swing and warm and humid!  The air conditioner has been doing its best to keep the home comfortable.

Next week our school age kiddos will be leaving for church camp.   That leaves us with the three adult children who still live at home.  This will be a first for us!

This week we have welcomed two, new to us, vehicles and next week two new licensed drivers....

Well.....I have been trying to get some pictures to upload but am not succeeding! Eeerrrrrr!  I will try again later, when I am not so frustrated!  I will try to keep calm and carry on! ;)
