happy mother's day!

"Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: 'Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.' Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates." proverbs 31.28-31esv
in the words of kanye west... "Hey Mama! I wanna scream so loud for you, cuz I'm so proud of you!"
by the grace of god, mama raised four children, often dealing with most of our greatest foolishness! ( we chillaxed when pops was home...fear factor) man, we flat wore this poor woman out...almost! what a fighter she is! she survived us all! i find it difficult to get one little baby ready and to church or anywhere else on time...mama did it with seeming ease. sadly i don't think i could articulate my gratitude for this friend and hero even IF i had time...i love you, mama!! thanks for loving me through it ALL.
p.s...and i forgive you for letting me wear this hideous outfit. ouch.


  1. What a great picture! Your mom ought to get her hair done like that again. The natural curl in her hair is wonderful! So pretty! Love your socks :-)

  2. Jared is so adorable. I hope our kids are half as cute as he was at that age. Heh.

    Oh and I think your mother is great as well. Mothers amaze me.

  3. What mother are YOU talking about??!! God is very good to give our children selective memory!
    Thank you dear #1 daughter

  4. Ha Ha! Enjoy it Cindy! Your daughter is now a full-fledge Mama and gratitude comes for Those That Came Before as the young moms now tread in our shoes:-) (I am still in AWE of my mom)!
    Interesting shirt on Jack-amazing how it coordinates with Hannah's skirt:-)
