Happy Mother's Day

One of the greatest joys of my life is definitely my took me a while to find my wings as a mother, but once I did, I embraced it wholeheartedly.

Mothering takes creativity...each child is different and requires a completely different approach.

Mallorye, now married, has always been my compassionate one...more concerned about everyone around her than her own self. As an adult, she's become one of my best friends and is quick to pick up on when things are off with her She is such an encourager and often surprises me with a card on a little "happy" to cheer me up.

Blake is definitely my "lover of life." He likes to be busy and often states that he's "bored." Unfortunately, cleaning his room is not his idea of a cure for I'm enjoying watching Blake develop into his own person and to see how his integrity is really starting to develop.

I was so blessed to have both of my children with me at church on Mother's Day, along with my son-in-law. I love that we serve at the same church and that my daughter & son-in-law choose to be a part of the small group that my husband and I teach. How awesome is that?!

Happy Mother's Day everyone!
