Mother’s Day 2012

This pictures about sums it up. We started out just two kids who fell in love, and almost 19 years later this is the result. Four beautiful kids, each with their own personalities, quirks, cute sayings, tempers, likes, dislikes, and all of them clamoring for your attention Mom.

Yesterday we drove down to one of our favorite spots, Oceanside. On our way down we listened to a message on parenting, which stopped working about 15 minutes in – so we just talked about being parents the rest of the way. Of course we feel like we’re not doing enough, and we’re not equipped to do the job. But I look at this picture and I’m reminded of how much God’s grace covers our life and I’m full of hope.

Jen, on this Mother’s day, I’m so thankful for you and I hope you know how much you are loved!
