The Ultimate Career


I requested that for Mother's Day John take these pictures before church. My kids cooperated pretty well. One of Caroline's Mom's Day gifts to me was to let me curl her hair. It is Desi who is usually more interested in "curley curls." I admit that my plan made us late for church but I must say that the couch in the hall was a comfey place for such a pregnant lady as I. After church I used my chore cupons made by the kids. It was a beautiful day and I was treated with such love. Among the blessings I was counting on Sunday was a faithful and devoted husband who even surprised me this year with a new bike trailer! -Another one of those inventions that make mothering so much fun.



I always knew C.S. Lewis was a wise man. But recently I ran across some of his words that are a boosting compliment to all of the hard working women out there:





"The homemaker has the ultimate career. All other careers exist for one purpose only- and that is to support this ultimate career. "

Hope you all had a HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!

Cute pictures as always. I love my nieces and nephews... even ones hiding inside their mommies belly. Thanks for the insight on careers I needed it this week.
