A Mother's Day Reflection

"My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother"  Proverbs 6:20

It's a wonderful thing when your adult children drop everything in their busy lives and let you know they love you by coming to spend time with you, or call you on the phone when they live several hours away.

It's a wonderful thing when you see your adult children repeating things for their children that you did for them when they were children.

It's a wonderful thing to share a laugh with your adult children.

It's a wonderful thing to know your children feel the same pain you do as they share their tears with you.

It's a wonderful thing when your adult children get along with one another.

It's a wonderful thing when your adult children walk in your faith after they have made it their own.

It's a wonderful thing to see happy grandchildren who know they are loved by their mom and dad.

It's a wonderful thing when your adult children center their lives around the Lord.

It's a wonderful thing to see your grandchildren being saved.

It's a wonderful thing when you move from a parenting role to being a friend of your adult children.

It's a wonderful but sad thing to know your children are grieving the loss of their parent, your spouse.

The gift of flowers from the hands of a grandchild.....PRECIOUS!

Had a wonderful weekend with my girls and the grandchildren!

I dropped Ilene off at the hospital tonight for a sleep study.  Praying she will not have to start wearing a CPAP machine!

I am tired!  Time for bed!  Have a blessed week!
