Mother's Day

So, tomorrow is Mother's Day.  My mom is spending Mother's Day with Jesus.  I have no mother to call and wish a Happy Mother's Day.  That is going to be really hard tomorrow.  But..I spent the day with my little sister!  We had a good time.  We ate at a local chain resturant, went to the educational store, children's resale shop and the a local beauty supply store.  The best part...we remembered Mom!  We smiled and held back tears.  We laughed and tried not to cry...guess we will do that in private when our heads hit the pillow tonight.

Tomorrow I will spend the day at church and then lunch with the majority of my children.  I will be queen for the moment and return to my normal duties by the end of the day.  That's fine with me.  You see, I am the mom.  "Mother of Miracles", "Mean ol' Mom", what have you.  My job title has ups and downs.  I love it, they love it.  We are the perfect fitted pieces to our family puzzle!

To the moms who read this blog, Happy Mother's Day!

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!

Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!

They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back!
