Happy Mother's Day!

I was the only mom at church today with a corsage.  And what a beautiful one!!  The girls (& Nathan) special ordered a corsage for me with 9 roses...one for Autumn, Meagan, Krissy, Erin, Heather, Laura, Kara, Leah, & Nanna...and an unopened bud for Lainey.  The little girl that sat beside me in Junior Church pointed at the unopened bud and said, "It didn't grow."  I had to blink the tears away.  How very true!  You can bet this corsage & card will be stashed away with my keepsakes.
Krissy made our favorite coffee cake last night for a special breakfast this morning.  Then for dinner, I had a ribeye steak done to perfection...well, perfect to me with a little black around the edges.  Gary said he could hardly stand to throw that good ribeye on the hottest flame to do that to it, but that's just the way I like it.  We had baked potatoes and peas to go with it and brownies with frosting for dessert.  Then I took a nap.
It was a great day all around.  It's amazing the changes in a year's time.  Lainey is no longer with us, but we have a son-in-law and a grandson and Baby Stratton on the way.  
God is good all the time, All the time God is good.


  1. Oh, Karen, how precious! Yes, a Happy Mother's Day!!
