"The older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children, to live wisely and be pure, to take care of their homes, to do good, and to be submissive to their husbands. Then they will not bring shame on the word of God." Titus 2: 4-5

Happy Mother's Day...I hope all of you who are moms and who have had a mom! will find time to go to this site sometime today or soon. I sent this little poem to my mom every year from the time I first had a child- 1966- until the time that she went on to heaven- in 2005. I pray it will be a blessing to you too.
She was the one who lavished each of us 5 children with her love and taught us each about Jesus, our Savior. She tiredlessly drove us to school- and picked us up from school- sometimes over 30 iles each way-she worked in the "store" which mom and dad ran, then picked me up from work- or came to football or basketball games to cheer our school on and watch me twirl baton- she drove me to choir and picked me up- all these driving things were for me- one of 5- so she was doing lots of other driving too!- She listened when I had problems with my current boy friend- stayed up late sewing me dresses to wear to whatever dance-attend
ed my plays, helped me pack for camp and then wrote letters and visited on weekends-helped me pack in just a few days when I was accepted to college- late- and then drove me to Illinois to college- wrote faithfully and supported me in every effort of life. She helped me have a beautiful wedding- she sewed all the bridesmaids dresses- helped plan the food and reception- cooked and served the rehersal dinner- Mom was always there and such a hard and cheeful worker. She was there to enjoy each of our children and many of our grandchildren. Mom slipped away gradually with Alzheimer's Disease- but even to the end-her love for children was so evident- we miss her but rejoice that she is home with Jesus- probably holding a baby! How I THANK GOD this mother's day for the children of my children!
