My 3 Gifts






These pictures of the boys were taken on Monday, May 8. It marked 6 yrs since our precious Jordyn (she's pictured with her Daddy) went home to Heaven, safe in Christ's arms.

The boys and I went to a castle that's just about 10 minutes down the road from where we live. It has a lot of gardens, so it's very peaceful and just beautiful to walk the grounds. We've actually yet to explore the inside of the castle, we need to do that!!

These are my 3 gifts. God's blessed me more than I deserve. I look at my children and often think "wow, what did I do to deserve them?" Most of the time I'm saying that in a positive way! :) Hey, we all have those days, where they seem to knock you off your feet! Today my oldest asked me to make cookies with him. So we made up a batch of Choc. chip cookies. All three of us got in on the action, they got some tasty cookie dough as well! LOL As I was placing the cookies on the pan, Jack my little one said "Momma, good job!" He was just so proud of the work I was doing I guess! I am sure it's one of those "you had to be there" moments, but don't kids do that all the time. Give you those precious little moments that if you weren't there, you missed it! It's just one of the many reasons why I'm a SAHM/Homeschooling mom. I am so thankful I don't miss out on these moments. How blessed I am!

Michele sent me to visit, Christy.

Happy Mother's Day--almost here, anyway. Kids can be wonderful and awful and there are so many times your heart warms to see them and also the occasions when they aggravate ones nerves. However nothing can make you appreciate your kids more than losing one.

I'm so sorry you lost Jordyn those 6 years ago, Christy. Mother's Day must be a little bittersweet now, but enjoy your fresh baked cookies with your sons. No doubt the future is looking good.

Sorry to hear about your precious little girl, Christy. It is a blessing to me to see a picture of her and her sweet smile. I know she is smiling down from heaven now.
