Yet Another Birthday!

Today Son #3 turns 25!   He was always my helper growing up.  Always wanting to help me make the beds, fold laundry, pick up toys...  He learned to pinch pennies while shopping with me.  He was my late night shopping buddy and always made sure my cart was perfectly straight!

Watching his baby sister in the NICU,  he reacted when her monitor went off as she turned blue.  He reached into her bed to adjust her  tiny body to open her airway and stimulate her.  The respiratory therapist told him he had saved his baby sister's life.  That was the start of his dream to be a respiratory therapist!

Son, I am proud of you and hope you have a terrific 25th birthday!

Happy Birthday, Son!

Daddy and I love you!

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!
