Thankful Day 26

I am thankful that I have been able to sleep in the last three days!  I am usually up and getting my day started at 5:20, but with a long weekend and no school I decided to sleep!  Today is the longest I have slept in-7:40.  Of course, I still have at least three nesters that greet me as I walk down the hall an my day is off and running.

Hmm...a busy house early.  Yes, I am blessed.  I have a healthy family who needs to eat, need clothes cleaned and mended, needs to be reminded to put their clothes away and that does not mean leaving them on the bed, are being taught daily how to keep house and why we keep house.  Yep, they are normal and they are my God-given responsibility! 

Days to sleep in...yes, I am thankful for that!

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!

(pictures will follow later once the parents have a chance to brag on their own!!!)
