Wonderful, Wonderful, Mothers Day!

I am such a blessed woman. I had a fantastic mothers day. Not because I got some hyped up gift but because I got to spend time with all but one of my children. They are all growing up so so fast. Where did all my toddlers go? I have to admit it is nice to be able to have adult conversations now instead of teenage scream feasts. LOL Although we still have one of those every now and then. All of the kids 31 down to 7 are doing great! That's a lot for a mom of 22 to say. I truly feel the Lord is so gracious to us. Everyday is a new beginning.

The pictures are of various kids, and my grandkids. I was enjoying myself and not taking pictures. The one of me is with my mother. I told her they made a mistake and put her picture on my drivers licence.

We also had a BIG family reunion at our house on Sat. for my mothers side of the family. It was wonderful to be able to see some of my cousins with whom I grew up with. Time goes by and we don't even realize it. We got to see some clips of some of the old home movies from when I was a little girl. It is amazing what time does to us. Of course I don't look like a movie star but I am oh so happy! Now don't get me wrong, life is not always a bed of flowers. We have our ups and downs just like any family. We have arguments, laziness, mouthiness, rudeness, and every other normal adoptive family issue. But in the long run all the good out does the bad. Just call me blessed mom of 22.
