We very rarely have all the kids in one place so it was fun snapping this picture yesterday. What a wonderful crew!
I'm reading a book by a woman whose first child was born at 24 weeks gestation. I feel very thankful this day that I had 9 healthy pregnancies, all full term. Yes, I have had some challenges with 6 C-sections and diabetes in the mix, but I never had high blood pressure and none of our kids have serious disabilities. It is really amazing. I know of course that every child has value and a child with major disabilities is just as valuable as a child without challenges -- but certainly as a mom of a large family, I am VERY thankful the kids are healthy.
My mother worked with the kids to make Mother's Day cards. They are so sweet!
And here is my Mother's Day present -- a new Kindle. Oooh, ahhh, ooohhh, I love a new Kindle!
