Happy Mother's Day

Kathryn and Qavah were both feeling well today so we went to church together this morning. It was good to be back with the congregation of believers singing praise to God. Although we do listen to sermons and have "church" at home when the girls are sick, there is nothing like taking part in community worship.

My children made Mother's Day a special event and I hope they know how much that blessed me. Their words of encouragement meant so much. For many a year, while children are young and growing, there is a lot of giving involved in being a Mom. It's downright exhausting at times. But after diapers, the basic childish temper tantrums, potty training, and college, it's fun to sit around and listen to them. They become interesting people with plans and ideas of their own and their conversations enrich our lives. Paul and I committed to nurturing their spirits when they were young, now we find they are nurturing ours.

Thanks to all the Dads and children who made Mother's Day a special event in your home!
