Happy Mothers Day

Two Reasons Why Being a Mama is the BEST Job in the World:


Dear Lord, it's such a hectic day,
with little time to stop and pray,
for life's been anything but calm,
since you called on me to be a mom.

Running errands, matching socks,
building dreams with building blocks,
cooking, cleaning, and finding shoes,
and other stuff that children lose.

Fitting lids on bottled bugs,
wiping tears and giving hugs,
a stack of last week's mail to read,
so where's the quiet time I need?

Yet when I steal a minute Lord,
Just at the sink or ironing board,
To ask the blessings of your grace,
I see them in my small one's face,

That you have blessed me all the while,
As I stop to kiss that precious smile!

To my beautiful wife and "our babies momma",

Happy Mother's Day 2008!

I love you, I love all you do for us, and I love every little thing about you. I remember all the talks we had before we had Emma and Kate come into our lives, about if we were going to make good parents to our girls. You have proved to be a great mommy! You show it in your unending dreams you have for them and your wishes on how to raise them. I see you are a great mommy in your everlasting patience and energy. Our children are lucky that they can call you, "My Mommy"; as I am just as lucky that I can call you, "My Wife".

I love you, and I am truly blessed that I get to spend all my days with you, and watch the best mommy in the world raise our girls!

Your Husband, Ben
