Images That Inspire Me

I've recently caught my kids in sweet moments that move me to remember why I love being a mom. Here they are.....

The following occurred a few days ago. Although Baby Hippo can walk down the hall alone perfectly well, some of his big brothers wanted to assist....

Later on that day I caught Twin B in another hallway in somewhat of a pensive state...

I wonder what he was thinking about. Probably puppies... or dirt.

Yesterday the 9-year-old girl was feeling sick and stayed home from school. Of his own accord, the 4-year-old boy offered to make her a sandwich, served her a glass of ice water, and brought the TV tray next to the couch on which to place her meal, complete with a cloth napkin. Isn't he an angel?

Or maybe not?...

And last, some images of the 9- and 11-year-olds talking to their missionary brother on the phone. The young people who serve as missionaries for our church are able to phone home on Christmas and Mother's Day, so this is a call they anticipated for a while....

Since it's Mother's Day here in Mexico, let me wish all of you amazing mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day! Thanks for listening. :)



P.S. I'm finally getting skinnier!

See how I'm doing it HERE! :)
