A Double Birthday

Son #7 and I share a birthday, 39 years apart!  Today we are celebrating the 12th birthday of Son #7!  My youngest man is growing up way to fast, I know, I always say that!  He is fun, sensitive, a prankster, and thinks outside of the box!  He keeps us on our toes since he is one of three children that think way deep!

No cake for this young man!  His new favorite dessert is
Arctic Blasters Orange Ice Cream bars.  His new collecting
hobby is glass soda bottles.  He asked for IBC Cream Soda for his
drink and Extreme Sour Warheads for his candy.

His gift was a Nerf Zombie Strike.  Our family loves
Nerf gun wars.  (He wanted a BB gun, but living in the
city with a busy road behind us it did not seem like
a good idea for an adventuresome young man.)

(Sorry, no pictures of the birthday Momma.  I guess no one thought to capture me on my 51st birthday.)

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!
