 A happy one indeed



This morning Noe ran into my room at 6:45 {I am forgiving} and said "HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY MOM!!". It was very sweet. 

I rolled over, in a very groggy state, and replied, "Thank you Noe! - Happy Mother's day to you too. You and your brothers made me a mom! Isn't that special?!"

He laughed. He looked at me with his little head cocked over to the right and said, "No we didn't mom. JESUS made you a mom!"

Indeed.

Thank you Jesus. Thank you Jesus. Thank you Jesus.

To my dear mommy Pat: You are the sweetest, most compassionate, loving and godly lady that I have had the privilege of knowing. I am humbled and grateful that God chose to gift me with you as a mother!

To my caring mother-in-law Arlona: I could never thank you enough for raising the man who brings me more joy than I ever could have imagined. Thank you especially for how much you are helping us out this year, while Dave is in school!!

To my wonderful {motherly} friend Kathy: You are a very important part of my life. I thank God for the influence you have had on me as a wife, a mother, and a Jesus following lady!


One could never do anything to deserve so many blessings! So I will just smile heavenward and accept the gifts. Because that is what they are. My boys and my mommies. Gifts...

And dear Jesus, please give my first little boy a very long hug today, because I miss him.

It is my pleasure to have Dave as our son. I am thankful that his brother and sister brought him to me when he was ready to receive Jesus as his Savior and to watch him grow spiritually. God made him the man he is today and I am proud to call him "Son". I am thrilled with the choice he made for his wife (that would be you, Wendi) and for the awesome boys that you are raising and allowing me to be an influence in their live. I am glad that you had a Happy Mother's Day. Thanks for your love and prayers. I had a good day.

Some of the sweetest presents come in such humble (annoying?) presentations, lol...and then the gift of wisdom from such a young messenger!

Absolutely lovely, Wendi! Hope you had Happiest of Mother's days (slightly belated)
