In California...

Hello all my blogger friends. I know its been a while and I have not made good the promise I made to post pictures of our Christmas and new years holiday. Sorry... I have been extremely busy with finals, sickness and now we are in California and have been her since Tuesday evening. We are having lots of fun and are sad to see our visit coming to an end... We will be leaving tomorrow afternoon after Sunday morning service in Kingsburg. Erica is going to be dedicated there tomorrow and then shortly after service we will be loading up for the long trip home. I PROMISE I will post pictures later on this week or next weekend of our holiday season and also of all our fun here in CA this week. So check back soon!


A Special Day...

Today is a very special day... It's my Mom's birthday! I can honestly say that although many of you out there think you have the "best mom" I truly have been blessed with the "ULTIMATE BEST MOM". As a child it is sometimes easy to overlook the sacrifices and hard work a parent endures to ensure their child's each and every needs are met. Now as an adult I look back and realize that I am the person I am today because of the parent's God chose to bless me with.
I love you so much! I could never write enough words to express what an AWESOME Mom, Grandma and Mother-in-law you are. You are an inspiration to me... You have the most amazing heart, and you continually shower your family with unconditional love. When we're apart I miss you so much! Although I say its just the kids counting down days till they get to see you again... that's not true...I'm the same way too...to be honest so is Shane.=) Thank you so much for always being there for me when I need you... in fact although you were not feeling well yourself this week... you still found a way to comfort your sick child. As always when I'm sick I "need my mommy" so I called you at like 7:30 in the morning just needing to hear your voice. Just something about when mommy says its going to be ok... then it will... bottom line!
Thanks Mom for all you do and for being you... I have the best Mom in the world and there's only one other person who can say that and I will believe them...PJ =)
Love you Mom
