Ode to my mother

Today, June 9th, my mom turns 50 years old. I've always known that she is an incredible person, but I think becoming a mother is making me so much more in awe of the woman that she is. I am so thankful for the example that she has set since the first day of my life. Knowing that I will soon have that tiny little person watching my every word and action is at times overwhelming and so humbling. I am just appreciative that I have had 24 years to watch the way to love my husband, teach my children, and serve the Lord in the way that I serve people. I aspire to be the kind of woman that she is.

You and Lily are both So So beautiful-we can hardly wait to get to love and hold her as soon as she is born. Jesus is so good to us!!
Wish we would have been able to celebrate your mom's special day with all of you.
Love You-Carla
