Thank You , Mom.

It was wonderful to be able to spend Mother's Day with my Mom this year. She and my sister, Amber, along with Amber's 3 kiddoes drove for 3 days to come visit us. THANKS!! We had a great time! I am so thankful to have a mother who is also a friend. We have so much fun together. I don't remember a time when I didn't love to spend time with my Mom as much as any friend. Thank you Mom for being that kind of a Mother! Thank you for including me in your daily life and always being interested in mine.

Grayson took us out to a Japanese steakhouse
for Mother's Day. It was delicious! The kids
loved it too.



I have to steal this quote from my sister Amber's blog
- it is just so good!

"Godly womanhood ... the very phrase sounds strange in
our ears. We never hear it now. We hear about every other
type of women: beautiful women, smart women, sophisticated
women, career women, talented women, divorced women.
But so seldom do we hear of a godly woman - or of a godly man
either, for that matter. We believe women come nearer to fulfilling
their God-given function in the home than anywhere else.
It is a much nobler thing to be a good wife, than to be Miss America.
It is a greater achievement to establish a Christian home than it is to
produce a second-rate novel filled with filth. It is a far, far better thing
in the realms of morals to be old-fashioned, than to be ultra-modern.
The world has enough women who know how to be smart. It needs
women who are willing to be simple. The world has enough women
who know how to be brilliant. It needs some who will be brave.
The world has enough women who are popular. It needs more who are pure.
We need women, and men, too, who would rather be morally right
than socially correct."-
Former U.S. Senate Chaplain Peter Marshall, 1940's



Thank You, Mom, for being an example of that kind of woman!

Great blog! Really enjoyed all pics especially when (sister) Mary was visiting. She looks great - must be the joy of spending time with daughters and grandkids. Lovely quotes: although I am quite worldly, I try also to be a godly women especially in raising our daughter. I know how important the Lord is to her life now and forever. Thanks!!
