Mother’s Day

Look closely at that picture.  It is a picture of my mom’s belly when she was 8 ½ months pregnant with me.  See my foot?  I must have been stretching.

I talked to my mom on the phone today and was glad she had a good weekend.  Dad took her our last night (I took Jenny out last night too…learned from the best).  After church today, they went to the nursing home and had lunch with my grandmother.  Then she went over to my brother’s house for a while this afternoon.  This week she’ll help watch my other brother’s son and then they are coming up here for a long weekend with us next weekend.

In every way she is just a fantastic mom…I knew it when I was a kid.  I have no memory of her not serving God.  She was my den mother in Cub Scouts.  She would yell loudly at my ballgames – which is more cool now than it was then.  I’m only more certain of it now.  She is supportive without being intrusive.  She cares deeply for my dad and is at his side always (can I keep saying it? The best thing to do for your kids is to work on your marriage).  And she is a natural as a grandmother…now seven times over.

By the way, even though it made it more interesting the opening line of this blog was a total fabrication.  That picture is a random one off the internet…you didn’t seriously think I was going to “honor” my mom by putting a picture of her belly on my blog did you?
