Gifts from my children…

IMG_0728IMG_0730

I just wanted to show and tell these beautiful gifts that my children have surprised me with recently...
Sam made this precious scrapbook full of encouragement and family fun times.
And yesterday, Sarah had this beautiful bouquet delivered to me...I wish you could smell its lovely fragrance!
The little plaque is from Ginny and it reads:
Dearest Mother..
The stable, loving home you raised me in
made me what I am today.
I really don't know what I'd do
without you. You are the sweetest,
most special woman in my life.
I may not always tell you just how
much you mean to me,
but you are the one I love,
more and more each day.

And a letter received from my oldest granddaughter Alyssa


There definitely seems to be a purple theme happening here!

What a blessing family is.

And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, Who [are] those with thee? And he said, The children which God hath graciously given thy servant.
Gen.33:5
