Our family had a very busy but fun Mother’s Day yesterday. We enjoyed a great time speaking with our teens at church during Sunday School and worshiping in the main service. From there we came home where Erin’s parents came over for a Mother’s Day cookout. While we were getting dinner read, Maeven kept my in-laws entertained. She put on her full Tinkerbell outfit, fairy wings, tutu, goggles, and a sun hat. While we sat around the table talking after dinner we heard loud thumping. It was Maeven jumping off the couch and saying “I fly, I fly!” When Meme and PopPop got ready to leave we could see that she was fading. I had to speak at a local church Sunday night to raise funds for FCA camp and before I left Maeven gave in and crashed big time on the couch. I snuck out without waking her, but Erin said shortly after I left, Judah decided to keep poking his sister in the nose waking her into a 45 minute cry. Finally, Erin got our tired Tinkerbell to sleep in her own bed.
We had a great time with Erin’s family and celebrating Erin and Cathy as great Mom’s. I am truly thankful for the way Cathy raised Erin to be such a Godly wife and mom. I am thankful everyday for the mother that Erin is and is becoming. She truly loves our kids and views them as a blessing and ministry. Maeven and Judah couldn’t have a better mother. Tonight, we are celebrating mother’s day a day late with my mom, Dawn. I am so thankful for all the love and prayer that my mom has poured into my life over the years and for the Godly example she has been to me! I am truly blessed by these amazing Godly mothers!
