Happy Birthday Dad!!

{wikipedia image}

Every year on this day the flag is flown high! 
While I was growing up I was sure it was because
 everybody knew it was my daddy's birthday! 
 I soon learned it was also Flag Day.

{you can read more about that here}

I am proud what our flag represents. 
I am proud of those who gave their lives for her.
I am proud that I am an American and I am free.
I love our country's flag and everything she stands for.

Happy 83rd Birthday Daddy!
Thank you for teaching me about Old Glory!
Thank you for your service in the Korean War!
Thank you most of all for being you; an unselfish, kind hearted,
loving, and a man of your word!

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!
