Loving Mom

Happy Mother's Day!

I decided to share with you a photo of my parents. I took this at the beach when I was with them and my sister and her family. It was wonderful to be there together. On that same trip my parents celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary. Pretty cool. I love how they still laugh like this after all these years. I hope to be doing that one day as well!

My mom is a beautiful woman with a servant heart. She helped me and was patient with me as I became a mom almost 15 years ago and I am so grateful for her. We have not lived in the same city since I have been married and so I miss her a lot. I am sure I do not tell her enough how much I love her but I do...so very much. I want to thank her for being a real woman. A woman who is imperfect but faithful...can it get better than that as an example? She has taught me much about love (when I was unlovable), grace (when I fell short), faith (when I had doubt) and joy (when I wasn't content). My life is so blessed because of her.

Happy Mother's Day Mom...I love you!

I'm speechless...the Lord has blessed us with wonderful, caring children. Your words have touched my heart and Dad's tonight. Thanks for being who you are (our daughter). Love you, Mom

This post makes it obvious you were raised by loving parents, not because of how they look in your photos, but because of how they look in your heart.

Great to see your Mom and Dad again! What a loving couple. And what a loving tribute! Have a great time on your photo shoot. Miss you!

They're evidently soul mates! How I wish I had photos capturing loving moments like this between my folks. Sadly, there weren't many to capture. You're very lucky, but then, it appears you know that without me telling you! Both pictures are terrific, by the way. They reveal their love so well.
