Mother's Day thoughts...

Today I am thankful...

Thankful for a mother who loved me so much that she shared the love of Christ with me and has prayed for me everyday of my life. She is one of very best friends!

Thankful for a Mother-in-law who taught me that there is more to life than just living.  I am thankful for her example and rejoicing with her as she enjoys this Mother's Day sitting with Jesus and her sweet little Hayley who was born sleeping so many years ago.

Thankful for a Mother-in-law that raised my husband to love the Lord and his family with all his heart.

Thankful for a husband who encourages me to be the best mom I can and who graciously allows me a chance to refuel with some girl time when things are getting crazy!

Thankful for the awesome opportunity to be a mother to my three sweet little boys who bring such joy and light to my life.

But today on this Mother's Day...

I can't help but to think about our 4th child...the one that God has called us to rescue from a distant land.

To be honest...we have no idea what we are doing...we just know the HE has called us and we are choosing to say YES!
