I was blessed with a wonderful Mother’s Day this year, as I have been every year so far! I still stand amazed that God has allowed me to be a mother. I grew up believing that it was the highest calling a woman can have. It is really the second highest: being a wife is the highest. I am thrilled that a godly (and handsome!) man wanted to marry me. I am humbled that my Lord blessed me with five children. I was an ornery, stubborn child for my parents to raise, so of all women, I am most unworthy to be called “mom”. I am very aware of how I fail as a mother each day, but I’m learning that failure is a good thing. My failure drives me to my knees and I call on the Lord for help. He has been giving it to me daily and I know He will continue to do so. What a huge comfort that is!

Me and my favorite man. 🙂 

My blessings: (L-R) Mitchell (10), Lauren(13), Leslie (7), Laci (6), Matthew (2)

Terry helped the kids pick out some gifts for me. I got a purple sign that said “LOVE”, a Coca-Cola glass, a coffee cup that has a small spoon in the handle (very cute), and a package of birthday cake flavored Oreos! I tasted the Oreos when we were in Canada last year, but hadn’t seen them in the states. My kids were overjoyed to find those for me here! I’m struggling to take off some weight, so I gladly shared my treat with everyone.

I hope you all had a great Mother’s Day! I would love to hear about it, so please comment! I have many other things to share, so I hope to be posting again soon. Thank you for reading!

    I love the picture, but I hate how quickly the children are growing up! Wow! All of you look great.

    On Saturday, my sister, daughter & I went on our churches annual Mother Daughter Shopping Trip. We had a wonderful time & found some great deals! On Mother's Day, my hubby made breakfast for me, before we rushed off to church. I enjoyed teaching my 4&5 year old Sunday School class about Mother's Day. They made cards with flowers & butterflies for their moms. After church, my sister came over to help my boys make us lunch, and then clean up from it. It was such a blessing to be able to rest & relax! I felt very loved and appreciated! Oh, forgot, hubby got me roses & star gazer lilies (my favorite flower!) and the kids got me a new rice cooker/steamer (mine died last week & I was totally lost without it!)On Monday my daughter & I went to the Mother Daughter Tea at her church, it was lovely!
