Happy Birthday!

Today is Son #1's 27th birthday!  Am I that old?  Am I really old enough to have a twenty-seven  year old child?  It sure does not seem like it was that long ago that I brought home a 9 pound 3 ounce baby from the hospital!

Every baby's birth is special, but nothing compares to the first!  Nothing prepares you for the first!  Son #1 was three days past his due date, but my water broke while Hubby and I were out having dinner with his parents!  It was cold, 36 degrees and raining!  (outside, not inside! ;-) )  Not to mention the restaurant was crowded and we were at the back!  I was soaked and my shoes had water in them!  The squeaked  as I walked!  At least I was only in labor for eight hours before I was able to hold my first child!

Happy Birthday Son #1!!
I love you and am so glad
that God gave you to me!

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! ;)
