For Mothers Day, May 13th, 2018
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
The moments of our lives may be bright with possibility, dark with fear or sadness, or even plain everyday gray, but God's glory never fades. May God's glory shine into the exciting lights, upsetting darks, and boring grays of your every day.

Life is a Special Occasion!
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY
Mothers Day is our opportunity to celebrate moms, wives, daughters, aunts, grandmothers, sisters and all the other people who have mothered us over the years.
Mother’s Day is always celebrated on the second Sunday in May. It’s not a federal holiday, however it’s widely celebrated as a special day to honor all mothers and motherhood. Together, lets honor the women who raised us and all the mothers who sacrificed for their children.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.
I do hope you all enjoy a wonderful Mothers Day! I certainly am. I am a happy mom! Although my own mother is no longer living, I remember her today and all she taught me. She was a good cook and feeding people was one of her favorite things to do. You never left her house hungry.
Today I’m honoring my own DD who is a mom and all my sweet DIL’s who are also moms and they are shown in the pictures starting with DD then DDIL#1 and counting …. to DDIL #6.
They are all wonderful mom’s and I’m a blessed mom to have them in my family too!
Being a mother is one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. My children have been in the greatest joy in my life and I love being a mom and a grand’ma’ too. There is not a day that goes by that they aren’t in my thoughts and prayers.
Although all my children are grown and have families of their own, they are still my babies. Being a mom is one job that never ends. We are always moms and they are always our children no matter how old they get.
I’m off to church today as always and hopefully some of my family will be there too.
I hope you all have a RELAXING Sunday! Happy Mother’s Day!
DDIL #6 has asked for prayers for her sister and her sister’s husband who are going through a difficult time right now and really need prayer. May the dear Lord bless and comfort them with needed help right now. In Jesus name we pray. Amen

COUNTING MY GIFTS
Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
5972. for mom’s everywhere, where would we be without them
5973. for my children, the greatest gift ever
5974. for answered prayers
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
