My littlest monkey LOVED climbing in the trees!

H3, while sitting on the potty: "Pee pee, COME OUT! COME OUT NOW!"
Me, to H2: "Unless you want to pay the water bill, please turn off the shower now." H2: "I'll pay the water bill, Mom." H1, to H2: "Dude, you're broke." H2 to H1: "I NOT broken!"
Overseen by me at our dinner tonight: all four of my boys high-fiving after burping. Yes, even Brian (my mature, minister husband) took part in the grossness. I'm definitely having one of those "I'm SO outnumbered." kind of days. :)
H2, the super cute ring bearer did AWESOME! He cracked us up during the wedding when he asked his Papa to "wake up!" My dad had closed his eyes in effort to keep from getting upset, and H2 thought he had fallen asleep. Priceless.
A sweet moment between me and my very sleepy H3

He told me last night that he was really nervous about singing in front of everybody, and we had a good long talk about it. Apparently all of my wisdom (ha!) worked, or he just got over it (more likely) because he got up there and sang and danced his little heart out!
Couldn't help but get teary when he accepted his diploma.
How is it possible that he can look so big, yet so little at the same time?

I'm reflective because I know I have two other little ones in Heaven, and every Mother's Day I think about them too, and can be thankful for what God has taught me through their little, way-too-short lives. I know someday I will see them, and that is amazing all in itself.
I'm reflective because there are a couple of very special people in my life who aren't moms, but desperately want to be. So I know this day is a really hard day for them, and I wish there was something I could do to fix it. And it's really hard for me to understand why things work the way they do, but right now I am praying and trusting that God knows the desire of their hearts...and I can't wait to see just how this amazingly creative God we serve is going to answer our prayers.

that is my favorite way to spend time with God. It amazes me that no matter how bad my day is going, all have to do is turn on my i-pod to one of my favorites, and within seconds...I'm okay again. And not just okay, but renewed, at peace, and reminded that my Lord is right here with me. All the time. And that will never cease to humble and amaze me.
