Blessed are the mothers

"Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
"Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.""

Proverbs 31:28-29

To be a mom is the greatest gift of all, I am convinced.
The most challenging, the most exhausting, the most rewarding.
[not that I know from first-hand experience... one day]

Since my mother-in-law wasn't available on Mother's Day,
we celebrated her last weekend.
We had a lovely Italian dinner followed by some incredible frozen yogurt.
Kris is gracious and kind,
thoughtful and trustworthy.
She raised two wonderful sons,
one of which I am lucky enough to call my husband.
I'm thankful to call her my mother-in-law
and to experience her love and commitment to her family.

[i failed to take pictures... all i have is my frozen yogurt and my golden spoon... forgive me...]

I spent much of this weekend with my mom.
Saturday was our big open house 3-day fundraiser (which I'll tell you more about soon).
Last night, we celebrated my mom at the Point of Grace concert at church.
We love Point of Grace and when I found out they were coming
I knew we had to go.
It was worth it. 20 something years later they are still rocking it. :)

I stopped by her house after church today to give her a hug and a little gift.
My mom is loving and genuine,
constant and supportive.
She has poured her heart into my sister and me,
and because of that, I know without a doubt my mom loves me with all she has.

Most people claim their mom to be the best there is.
I make the same claim.
My mom wins.
"Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all."

Happy Mother's Day to my mom.
Happy Mother's Day to my mom-in-law.
And happy Mother's Day to all the other moms out there who love their children just as deeply.

What a gift to be a mom!
So excited to join the club one day.
[not for awhile though]
