It's Almost Here!

Tomorrow night is the graduation ceremony for Daughter #3!  She is so excited and we could not be happier for her!  She is very nervous about giving a speech and has tried to get out of doing it! *smile*  I am sure she will do fine!  Now, if I can get through the ceremony without crying!!!!!

It has been a busy day with finals and studying for finals with rest of the scholars!  I am so tired that I just could sit and cry!  I am sure rest of the week will be the same with making sure the everything is ready for Daughter #3's open house on Saturday and then going over to Son #2's home for a family cookout!  The open house and cook out are very simple but the stress in just getting to that point is a bit overwhelming right now.

So, happy thoughts for tomorrow!  Only 7 more scholars and 10 years to go!

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!

Sad Turned Happy

Six years ago today my family's heart was broken by the death of my mother.  Today turned happy because Grandbaby number 11 was born!  Grandson W was born at 12:38 pm, weighing 8 pounds 15 ounces, and 22 1/2 inches long!  Daughter #1 and babe are doing well!!!!! (pictures will follow later once the parents have a chance to brag on their own!!!)
