A little truth...

I started to think today, because it's Mother's Day, that truly being a mom is a big freaking deal. I think about the things that my mom does even now for her adult children and I'm blown away about how your entire life is truly devoted to your children. I mean there are varying degrees I suppose, starting from changing, and feeding all the way up to listening and offering advice to your adult children, but seriously, a mother's job never ends. She's the first person I call when I need to know the difference between a rump roast or round roast...the one I call when when I can't think of that last ingredient, when things go bad, when things are good, when things are funny, when I want to complain, and when I want to cry. I can't wait until I've got someone on the other side of the phone or conversation that needs those useless but priceless pieces of information from me.


  1. Kari, I don't know if you remember me or not, but I went to Grace with you. (Maiden name was Snyder) I came across your blog, and I've been thinking a lot about you and praying for you. Thank you for being willing to share your journey and heart with us.

  2. Laura! I do remember you! That's awesome that you found my blog...and to top it off you like it? =) Seems like you're a very busy mama these days and your children are GORGEOUS! (I popped over to your blog to check it the background).
    Thanks for reading and thanks for the encouragement.
