Mother's Day Thoughts . . . and a Birthday!

My youngest daughter was born the day after Mother's Day, 1982, she was the best Mother's Day gift ever!   Like all of my children, she is such a blessing in my life.  This year, her birthday is on Mother's Day!  I cannot think of a better way to celebrate Mother's Day than to celebrate her birthday with her on this special day.

Jessica and Tanner.

This is her sweet family.


Today, she is the mother of four beautiful children, who are the light of her life, just like she is mine.  
When she was just five years old, she sang like a little angel. 

One day, her primary teacher at church called me and wanted to know if I would sing with her in Sacrament Meeting.  Of course I said, "yes!".  This is the song we sang, I barely made it through the song without being in a puddle! Enjoy this sweet song . . . and think of your mother!





Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers in my life!


Hugs,

  2. What a lovely post. My oldest daughter, Amber, was also born the day after Mother's Day in 1981. May 11 is her birthday. I started into Labor on Mother's Day. Quite the gift. Your daughter and her family are just lovely. Have a Happy Mother's Day.

  9. That song always makes me cry. And yes - I have to go play the organ in 30 minutes. See what you did to me? Now I gotta go re-make up my face. I hope they don't do this in Sacrament meeting. Beautiful post!!

  10. Thank you for starting my morning off with tears.....tears of happiness for all Mothers. I found this quote (I do a nightly thought each and every night where I send out quotes and this is one of them) about Mother's that I would like to share with you: I carried you every second of your life and I will Love you for every second of mine.
    Your daughter and her family are blessed to have a mother like you.
