My Mom is one of those amazing women who...

-looks at the BRIGHT side of almost every situation
-offers GRATITUDE regularly
-can make people FEEL comfortable and liked
-easily whips up a CRAFTY beauty
-willingly shares her gifts & talents WITH others
-tries to focus her life on CHRIST
-teaches her children by faith, example, & LOVE

My Mom is one of those superMOMs who...

-joyfully raised 4 children (at one time she had 3 kids UNDER 3)
-frugally made wise choices for her young family
-made delicious dinners for the family to gather around the table on a regular basis
-made sure her children knew they were LOVED by her and most importantly, by GOD
-prioritized her life around her family
-avoids criticism or negative commentary
-makes events special just by BEING there 
-continues to give her energy, love, and advice to her little grownups!

“And so, my dear young women, with all my heart I urge you not to look to contemporary culture for your role models and mentors. Please look to your faithful mothers for a pattern to follow.”

~M. Russell Ballard

Happy Birthday week, Mama!

Enjoy some down time, some turkey time, 
and some reflection time.
I hope my children will be able to say at least SOME of the things about me that I am able to easily say about you.

Also...see you soon!
