Happy Mother's Day

As Mother's Day approaches fast I spend a lot of time thinking about my mother and all she meant to me! She was more than just a mother, she was my friend and I love her dearly. I say love because one day we will be together again, it is not the end when you have a relationship with the Father.

On Mother's Day I also spend a lot of time thinking about the different mother's or yet to be mother's in our family.

Here are some Mother's in my immediate family:

The first mother is Mary, she is our first born and such a joy in our lives. She is married to George and lives in Indiana. Mary is a nurse who chooses to stay at home with her children Alayna, Emma and Joshua. We feel that Mary sacrifices above and beyond for her family and we appreciate all that she does! We call Mary our Martha Stewart because of her abilities in decorating, cooking etc. I wish that she lived closer to help me now. We love you Mary Happy Mother's Day!!!!!!

The second mother-to-be is Sarah, she is our middle child and she also is a joy in our lives! She is married to Eric and they live in Colorado. Eric and Sarah are adopting Internationally and we couldn't be more excited! They have no children of their own, well except for their dogs, at this time. We have been watching Sarah planning and getting ready for adoption and we have marveled at how she is making herself available for such a time as this. Sarah has always been our career daughter who we thought would never have children because she has always lived life in the fast lane working all the time. To get ready to raise a family she has started her own jewelry art business and quit a good job to stay at home. I can't wait to see what God has in store for her and Eric! We love you Sarah, Happy Mother's Day!!!!!

And last but not least the third mother is our baby daughter Ashia who is ALSO a joy in our lives! She is married to Ben and they manage our farming in East Mississippi, we couldn't farm there without them. Ben and Ashia blessed us with their first child Austin last September. Ashia has amazed us with her mothering skills, she does research daily to be a better mother and help provide for Austin's spiritual and physical needs. She also, like the other two girls is very creative and her decorating and cooking abilities qualify her to be our Little Martha Stewart. Ashia and I have been through a lot together and she has always been there for me! Thank you Ashia, We love you too Happy Mother's Day!!!!!!!!

When you're a child she walks before you,
To set an example.

When you're a teenager she walks behind you
To be there should you need her.

When you're an adult she walks beside you
So that as two friends you can enjoy life together!!!!

The first paragraph made me cry. I still have my mother and love her dearly, I hope that I am able to spend many more years with her. I just wish that I could still enjoy my grandmothers company I miss her so much.
