Mother's Day!

Today was a great day, I got up and made my own breakfast ( remember I have all boys in the house now ) then we headed off to church together. One of the speakers spoke of our role as Mothers...meaning all women and the important role we have as daughters of God.

1. To Nurture...Like the sun!  Our spiritual light can help others grow all around us
2. To be an is important to live, what we teach our children and others
3. To create a place to grow...there should be an atmosphere in our home that creates a climate of love, safety, acceptance, and a place where the Spirit of God can be felt.

She mentioned Mother Theresa and how over 40 years she served others, and none of them were children that she bore.

A woman's influence is felt everywhere...may we never forget to do good continually!

It was a great reminder for me, I love being a Mom! It by far has been the hardest, toughest job in the world, but the best job in the WORLD. I am so grateful to have 4 wonderful, happy kids ...who are making a difference for good in the world. Kids who know their Heavenly Father and are trying daily to do what's right. How could any Mother ask for more?

I hope all of you had a wonderful Mother's Day and will remember your incredible worth!
Good night dear friends!
P.S. Don't forget to read this sweet story!


A man stopped at a flower shop to order some flowers to be wired to his mother who lived two hundred miles away.

As he got out of his car he noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing.

He asked her what was wrong and she replied, "I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother.

But I only have seventy-five cents, and a rose costs two dollars."

The man smiled and said, "Come on in with me. I'll buy you a rose."

He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his own mother's flowers.

As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home.

She said, "Yes, please! You can take me to my mother."

She directed him to a cemetery, where she placed the rose on a freshly dug grave.

The man returned to the flower shop, canceled the wire order, picked up a bouquet and drove the two hundred miles to his mother's house.
