My Mom

DSC_0276 I could easily write pages on this women who so influences my life but I will just say this....

My mom is...

- a Godly example of a devoted wife. She beams with love and admiration for her husband of 30 years. Mom graciously supports, loves, encourages and works side by side with my dad and it has not gone unnoticed.

-tireless in her love of her children. My mom has been no stranger to sacrifice when it comes to her kids.I know she has spent many an hour on her knees in prayer for the three of us.  She defines strength dignity and purity.  In raising my own children, as I encounter the daily ups and downs of parenting I often find myself thinking "what would my mom do?"

- an AMAZING grandmother! My girls never get enough time with Grandma. One of the greatest joys of having kids is seeing my parents as grandparents.

- approaches life with JOY. My mom has a great sense of humor! I would have to say that one of the things that defines her is the ability to just LAUGH. Her joy is contagious. DSC_0469 










-is faithful in her pursuit of JESUS. My mom has a faith I respect, a wisdom I seek and a maturity I greatly admire. Both of my parents have been fervent in their passion for the Lord, the greatest gift they have given their children. 

Needless to say, I have been greatly blessed and count it an honor to be able to call my mom.... "Mom".

" She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all." Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. She puts on strength and honor as if they were her clothes. "

Proverbs 31:24-30 (NIV )
