HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY



As the old adage says, "a picture is worth a thousand words." In truth, I don't have words to adequately express what is in my heart. When I was a little girl playing with dolls; when I was a teenager praying to know God's will for my life; when I began college in pursuit of a career (because, after all, these were the fledgling years of women's lib. - and we were all going to be whatever we wanted to be),all that time my heart really yearned to be just like my Mom. My real desire was marriage and family; my dream career homemaker.

I have been blessed to live out that dream, but in those early years I could never have imagined all it would encompass. Here we are, 41 years later - four generations of family. I didn't know how deep my love for my husband and children would run, how all-consuming it would be. I couldn't imagine the joy of seeing my children grow into such amazing adults. And grandchildren... blessing upon blessing.

Add to all that the blessing of having my Mom still with me - and I am thankful beyond words. The picture says it all - four generations of "US". Thank You Father for giving me the desires of my heart.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL THE MOMS! Have a blessed and joyful day.

Blessings,

What a great picture - and what a high calling we have to be wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, mother-in-law. I am looking forward to being back home. I loved the years abefore I had to go to work.

Did you see the picture in my last post of my family reunion? I just love it.

What a wonderful family picture...and what a beautiful post!
Yes, there is no higher calling...in service, a couple sang a song for mothers that brought me to tears, "You're changing the world...one heartbeat at a time."

I just posted similar sentiments about being blessed to have my girls, and my 81 yr old mom still with me, too...

A very Happy Mother's Day Linda! Hope it was wonderful!
