my mom's high school senior picture
today is my mom's birthday. so this post is a hApPy BiRtHdAy shout-out to her.
being a mom myself, i have learned a lot about how truly great my mom is. everybody has the bestest mom ever. that's just how God is, He's cool like that.
my mom does everything for everybody. we have to make her do things for herself. her gift is to give and encourage and listen. she likes to see you smile.
now that i have my own children i realize how much i probably tore my mom up and drove her crazy as a kid. she probably worried herself to death about me. sorry, mom.
and i now realize that even when you do all that stuff that drives mom nuts, she (and only she, dads don't quite think like this) may want to just shake you silly but she looks at you and remembers your sweet-little-soft-baby-like-self and sighs because that's how she'll always see you. and she loves you silly instead.
me, as my sweet-little-soft-baby-like-self
thanks, mom. i love you so much.

isn't that so cool???
looks like it was made just for us. but if you go on facebook, the uploaded photos from all my friends show that it was made for everyone, for the two rainbows were over homes and buildings and interstates all over the city.
kinda gives you an understanding of how God works...
all places, all the time, all people. and we think He's just there with us.

school has taken over our lives. again. *sigh*
we always seem to have a difficult time getting started back. we're all used to sleeping late and being leisurely, then WHAM, back into the briarpatch we are thrown.
but here's what we've managed to do lately...
* purchase two chinese dwarf hamsters, Nomi and Lily
* have a small fender-bender with our van and meet our next door neighbors all at the same time (no worries, nationwide is on our side)
* have a head cold that won't go away
* watch the gamecock football opener
so there we are. it's september.
