Surgery and Happy Anniversary

Yesterday afternoon Grandson E had a minor surgery at our local children's hospital to remove a cyst on his forehead near his left eye.  He did great, but it was bigger and deeper than the surgeon first thought.  He will have a nice little scar once he has healed completely.  I told him just to tell every that he and Huckleberry Finn were trying to save the Widow Douglas from her run away buggy!  Okay, at 16 months of age has no idea who Huckleberry Finn is let alone the Widow Douglas; nor that he is "playing" the role of Tom Sawyer.  Love the classics!  (I don't remember the Widow Douglas ever having a run away buggy either!) 

Today Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 celebrate their 4th wedding anniversary.  We got the privilege of babysitting Grandson E while they celebrated at PF Changs.

Happy Anniversay Meggie and Matt!
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!
