For Mother's Day this year, I received a special gift. Brady and Bryant were baptized at church. They were saved back in March, but we wanted to be sure "Pappy" could be home to see them get baptized. When we picked the day I didn't even realize it was Mother's Day. But it was a blessing to get to combine the two events. Nearly my whole extended family attended church--which boosted attendance to near Easter proportions. =) We then enjoyed our regular Mother's Day meal at my mom's to give Grandma Frances the day off from cooking for us all.
I am thankful to have a family who raised me in church to learn the values by which I do my best to live my life and pass on to my children. It was truly a wonderful Mother's Day. I don't think there can be anything more rewarding in your life than seeing your children grow into whatever they will become and know that you had a hand in it. I hope all of the other mother's out there had as blessed a day as I did.
