|Celebrating Mother's Day with you, 1 week early!|
Those two words pretty much sum up our heart-felt thoughts, but to make it more interesting, I decided to make those words up into an acrostic... well sort of!=) Some of these I had to use "text" spelling to make it fit, since I didn't inherit my Daddy's or Heather's abilities of making rhymes! =)
O-ther's first. In our minds there is NO other Momma with more of a servant's heart, than you!
"Ur" (pronounced You're) our Prov 31 Momma... hands down! the best EVER! (And thank you for not judging me for not measuring up to you. Especially since my version of being a "Biblical Woman" is still in the Bible; but somewhere stuck back in the maps section!=)
R-ejoicing Heart! Thank you for refusing to allow the trials of life to take away that silly, flirting with Daddy way you have, and just your fun-loving self that we all love soooo dearly! That, in and of itself, has been an example to me more than you'll ever know!
E-tiquette Queen! Right up there just after Emily Post of course! =)
X-traordinary Never any such thing as "just getting by for you"... always has to be as near perfect as is humanly possible! From ironing pillow cases to table settings to rolling out Sunday Dinner rolls, everything has to be perfect!!! =)
A-dvice You and Daddy are amongst the 1st we call when we're in a pickle, for we know that you'll pray much with us as well as, give us godly council and I'm so blessed to have you for parents!
M-oma! No other word fits you! But oh the wealth contained w/in that word! There are absolute volumes of knowledge therein, which you have endeavored to lovingly pass down to we four kids, then our mates, and now on to your grand-kids! and if Jesus tarries I know you'll pass on your knowledge to your great-grand-kids in God's time! (Keith and Natalie that's just for you! lol!=)
P-apa's loving wife! Even if the most romantic thing you always told us you did was to "iron his shirts" =) Thanks for ALWAYS gladly following Daddy wherever God has led him!
L-oving our mates as much as you love us! And Yes, we'll forgive you for loving your grand-kids MORE! After all, what Gram doesn't?! =)
E-conomical! You always found a way to make "somethin' out of nothin' ". In fact you had that whole 'Home Economics 101" thing down pat!!! I can't Thank you enough for this trait that you've passed on to both of your missionary daughters. You prepared us WELL for life on the mission field... even if we did end up landing on two different continents! =)
Happy Mother's Day! I love you Moma!
Love, Laura and Family
