Mother's Day With Leigh

Mother's day is still hard for me... a day where all attention is on me - a day to be "praised"... but then that feeling goes away and I begin to focus on what would be an adequate way to "give Mommy praise"... (heee heee). My Mother's day wish is of course being with my wonderful Hubby and beautiful daughter AND to unwrap a package filled with very selfish gifts - i.e.. a house massage ( luxurious robe included) and a one of a kind outfit (needs no alterations and fits so well I look 10 lbs smaller). THAT IS MY MOTHER'S DAY WISH! Remember, they MADE me do this...I would be just fine waking up as if it were a normal Sunday morning - (right Moms?).

Happy Mother's Day to all Women investing in the lives of children!

A Mother's Day Message

Happy Mother's Day!!

I hope that you are enjoying this weekend. I can't imagine what the world would be without moms. One of the greatest gifts God has allowed in my journey is the opportunity to be the mother of Spence and Price.

I'm very excited about this Mother's Day because my Mom will be in Nashville with my family over the weekend. Now that I'm a mom, I realize what a hard job she had and what a truly great job she did. I still haven't figured out how the laundry was always done and a meal on the table every day. (and it wasn't from Sonic). A mom sets the tone of the house. Dad's are super important, but there is a tone that is set among the family and it usually comes from the mom. My mother taught me how to sing. Not only literally, but in life. The first songs I remember learning were about Jesus and his love for me. She demonstrated that throughout all of the seasons in my life. After winning ballgames or losing them, at good grades and not so good, boyfriends or break-ups, she reminded me of who God was in the midst of all of my stories. Was she perfect?? Of course not. Is there things she probably would've done different? Probably so. Did she do her best to love me? Absolutely. Thank you Mom for showing me what a relationship with Jesus looks like. Thank you for loving me with everything you have. Thank you for teaching me how to "sing" of God's great love. I love you so much.

Take time today to recognize your Mom or someone who has been a "Mom" to you today.
Love,
Denise

Leigh's Favorite Easter Tradition

Easter has always been my favorite time of year...the weather seems to improve so much from the cold winter... the flowers and the trees come back to us with bright colors and we get to see more sunshine. When I was a child our family tradition was going to our friends house after church and having the BIGGEST Easter egg hunt EVER!!! The thrill of the hunt was so exhilarating... so I am trying to keep the same tradition going for my little girl (thanks to our neighbors and dear friends). Happy Easter everyone!!! Celebrate Jesus death and resurrection with those you love!!
