Feeling Honored

I think being a mother must be one of the hardest, but most rewarding and honoring jobs.  Sometimes I feel very overwhelmed and wonder if my training will ever make a difference.  (okay, i know it does, but sometimes you wonder what the little ol' brain is thinking when your training)

During homework today, Daughter #6 was telling me about her Sunday School lesson from yesterday.  They had stars that were hanging on the dry-erase board.  The teacher had said they were going to put movie stars names on them and then talk about what they had compared to what was missing in their lives.  Daughter #6 said the class was naming off different stars and she had no idea who most of them were.  She went on to say that she was glad that we did not make a big deal over movie stars.  I asked her if she felt left out not knowing them and she said, "No."

We do have a TV, we watch selected movies on DVDs, Netflix, and a few local stations we can get on our "little black box".  Our focus is not on what the world is doing, who is making it big in Hollywood or who are the biggest names in sports--I still don't think "one man" is worth 96 million dollars.  We don't bury our heads in the sand or live in the dark ages either.  

I guess what I am saying is that I felt honored to know that my hard work of keeping my children's attention focused on what is important and eternal is making a difference.

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!







MERRY CHRISTMAS 2016

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS!!!!



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! ;)
