Mothers Day and....

It has been a while since I posted but we have been really busy. School is officially over and I have been searching for all new curriculum for next year. I think I have pretty much narrowed it down to a couple of things. Getting excited about the new school year starting. On the other hand Mothers Day is Sunday and it will be a year since my dad passed away. What a mothers day to have right? I well all of my family has had a hard week knowing this is coming up. Wow the time has passed so fast, but sometimes I still think he will be home for the weekend from work. Sometimes it still does not even seem real. I miss him so badly, but at the same time I remember the early morning phone call I got from my mom the last night my dad was home and he was yelling cause he was in so much pain, and it feels so good to know he is not in pain anymore. I wouldn't take him back in that shape that is for sure. I think one of the best parts is knowing that I will see him again in heaven. And through all that dad went through one thing that sticks in my head that he said to us was GOD IS GOOD! And how true is that. Bryan asked me what I wanted for Mothers Day and all I could say was I dont know. I am having a hard time with this so I ask that each of you to please pray for me and my family especially my mom as this is weighing hard on her as well. Let me just say something about my mom. I am sure we all think we have the best mom in the world. But my mom is just awesome. I love her dearly and couldnt have asked for a better mom to have. She is such a strong, caring, compassionate and loving lady. So to my mom and each of you ladies I wish you all a Happy Mothers Day!

I wish I knew the right things to say, but know I am praying for you. I am sure this is a hard time, but you got it right, you will see him again, and I am sure that is comforting. Your mom is a sweet woman & her love for God shines through. I wish you all a very Happy Mother's Day!
