Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving

What a wonderful day it has been!  Our entire family has been together, including my daddy, sister, and brother-in-love.  It has been the best day ever!  Daughter #2 has taken some great pictures, so I will try to get some from her to post.

I am very thankful that God has given the honor to be a wife and a mother.  Both callings come with lots of work, but the love it gives is makes it worth the hard work!  It has been wonderful to see my nesters that took flight, create nest of their own and begin to raise a new generation.  I pray that they work hard on their marriages and raise their young ones for the Lord.  My nesters that are still nesting, I plan to keep on training them for the Kingdom to serve the King of Kings.

This evening we plan to spend with our neighbors, enjoying the memories of years gone by.  Yes, I am blessed!  I am so blessed!

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! ;)
