Since Marti is off enjoying some time away in Northern Ireland, I thought I'd post a quick blog to wish her a happy Mother's Day. Having been home for two full and 2 half days with the kids, I continue to marvel at what a great mother she is and wonder how she does this day in and day out. I know that Marti's dream since childhood has been to be a mother and I am so thankful that I can be part of this journey with her. I know that the kids don't always make it easy (okay, most of the time they don't make it easy) and that I don't recognize and appreciate all she does for us, but please know that I know what you give to us. But more than what she does for us and for the way she runs her household, I am thankful for her desire to see me and her children living out God's vision. Marti, I know you have sacrificed a great deal because of us, and I want you to know that I thank God for you and for the beautiful children you have brought into this world.
Now, I had intended to have the kids each give me something to blog about mom, but I wasn't able to get this done...but who knows, maybe they will think of someway to tell mom how much they love her.
Marti, you mean the world to all of us, so please know that we love you dearly and have missed you while you were gone.
