Thanking God today!!

for the gift of my mama and for the gift of being able to be a mama.
Got to wake up at my mama's house this weekend, after spending the weekend there on "retreat" since the hubbs was off at his little sis' graduation in Idaho. Spent a few days refreshing, reflecting and restoring and also had a chance to realize just how loved I am by my mama through all the kazillion ways she shows it. There is nothing she wouldn't sacrifice for her chicks, whether in the nest or out. I can only pray that my little bug will someday know the depth of her mama's love for her too. It's a good place to find rest and peace.
The best gift I could have received today was opened up when I peered over at the Bug's monitor this morning and watched my girl counting 1...2...3...4 as she passed her pacifiers from one pile to the next with her Mimi. It was one of those "aha" moments for all 3 of us that there is fruit being stored up, grown and born in this lil babe o' mine. All the laboring is worth it...beginning from the Mimi down!!! She's always ready to pass down a legacy of love and a love for learning and we are so blessed to have her training us up in the way we should go...lil Bug and I both! Thanks Mimi for loving us both so deeply and dearly. You are truly are, in every detail of the word, a BLESSED mother...
"Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her: "Many daughters have done well, But you excel them all." Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, And let her own works praise her in the gates."
-Proverbs 31:28-31

Praying you all are enjoying some of the fruits of all your labors today, the literal labors and the dailies too!!

You do have a great Mom (and Dad) and are a great Mom yourself. I know that I've observed lots in both of you that has inspired me...and I'm not just saying that :)

Look at how young you looked as a mama, Krystal! It's amazing to know that your mama has made YOU the mama you are today. I think that all the time when I have those moments with the GGs.
