A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

Visit's, hugs and conversation...

 It's not only about the flowers from my daughter 
But they are about the prettiest I've ever seen
 Me and my sweet girl.
I love watching my daughter as a mom. 
Her love for those little one is so strong.
 She is the most patient, kind, loving, generous, God-loving and selfless mamma I know!
She is a wonderful example to her children... they have an amazing teacher.
 Did I mention silly?

It's not about the "selfie stick" I received from my youngest,
 It's about the photo...
  I actually love this photo of my son and I!

 I love every gift I received from my family. 
but I get the most joy from the visits and hugs and conversations!
My kids, grands and husband gifted me with love through communication and physical "presents"

About 8:30 pm on Mother's Day I became giddy with delight
when I saw my Daughter-in-love's name on my phone screen,
 I knew that meant "Facetime" with my 3 from the twin cities.
I opened my phone to the sweet face of my youngest granddaughter and her
words of excitement when she saw my face,... "nah-ma" (grandma).
Even though they weren't in my presence physically, it meant a lot to talk with them on a live stream!

 I got to  spend time with my sister and mom on Mother's day weekend,
 We weeded mom's front flower bed...almost done, then we'll plant  :)
Mom's a good supervisor!

We were also blessed with the 2 other grands for an overnight at Grandma's house.
 Sweet girl, who's growing up fast.

I LOVE the look on Carson's face as he hauls all of uncle Gavin's discs back to the bag. 
Gavin seems quite enamored with his little nephew!

LOVE is a verb...
My kids and husband acted out love throughout the day with hugs, visits, and conversation.... 
they made time for me and I love them for that.
I'm one blessed mamma
