Mother's Day 2014

Our Mother's Day weekend was packed with tons of comings and goings. 

On Saturday we went to Union City to get some things at the outlet mall. We stopped and ate at Ryan's (and I was so disappointed because the UC one is usually good). 

The kids (really, Bradley) had to play the claw game and he picked this bear up the first time, but it fell not once, but twice before he finally got it. I estimate it to be a $6 bear. Lol. Harrison was ecstatic with his prize! 

On Sunday we did church, watched Gremlins (Mother if the Year!), and then ate dinner at Applebee's (a much better meal than Ryan's!). 

A great weekend in the midst of the chaos that is otherwise known as May!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there and all those who have been like mothers to people. 

10 An excellent wife who can find?
    She is far more precious than jewels.
11 The heart of her husband trusts in her,
    and he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good, and not harm,
    all the days of her life.
13 She seeks wool and flax,
    and works with willing hands.
14 She is like the ships of the merchant;
    she brings her food from afar.
15 She rises while it is yet night
    and provides food for her household
    and portions for her maidens.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
    with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
17 She dresses herself with strength
    and makes her arms strong.
18 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.
    Her lamp does not go out at night.
19 She puts her hands to the distaff,
    and her hands hold the spindle.
20 She opens her hand to the poor
    and reaches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household,
    for all her household are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes bed coverings for herself;
    her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates
    when he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them;
    she delivers sashes to the merchant.
25 Strength and dignity are her clothing,
    and she laughs at the time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
    and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
27 She looks well to the ways of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women have done excellently,
    but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
    but a woman who fears theLord is to be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
    and let her works praise her in the gates.

I'm so blessed to be a mother to these 2 little ones. I pray that I guide them up in the way they should go.
