I hope your Mother’s Day was filled with raindrops on roses and picnics with cheesecake. The latter are certainly a couple of my favorite things.

I trust you were amid friends and family and maybe even were blessed with a surprise gift and billet doux or two.

I’m personally convinced that Mother’s Day is one of those magical holidays that calories don’t count and M&Ms are calorie deficient.

The Husband, my tech support geek, surprised me with a gift I did not even know I wanted until a generous reader, Andrea, observed that I didn’t have one.

In closing, here’s a peek at another one of my Mother’s Day treasures:

“Dear Mama,

Thank you for your consistent love, kindness, faithfulness, and faith. Over eleven years, you have seen me grow and mature, cheering along the way. I really can’t tell you how much that means to me. I feel secure knowing that you are home, or just down the stairs. You have helped me in my walk with Christ, and I strive to be more like you every day. You are the most beautiful woman in the world. I love your laugh, your whimsy, your sassy frass self. You have been nothing but understanding as I have had beauty accidents and confidence fails. Today it is time to celebrate you. Your excellence, your beauty. I hope you have the best Mother’s Day in the World!

Your loving daughter,”

The Oldest Girl

I am one lucky Mamma!

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah!

Dear Jael, As you know, I’m a reader not a writer. In this case, however, I’d like to present a simple observation about several of your recent posts. Through your prose, I glean the power of WORDS. In your “Family Trailers”, the oldest boy wisely shows how WORDS can diffuse instead of incite. “Subscribe to BH” paints the beauty of encouraging WORDS from the eldest daughter. A stranger’s WORDS affirm in “Unexpected GIft”, and the “Bitter’s Edge” reveals that a pause button is necessary because WORDS can wound. Very powerful are these WORDS.
I’d also like to note a second observation. Your eldest daughter weaves beauty and encouragement in her WORDS…like her mama. The oldest boy states genuine,honest, straight to the point WORDS….like the Husband : ) May they continue to do so!

Beloved. Well named you. I receive the love and risk you took to bring these loving words to pen. I claim them with gratitude as my heart sings Hallelujah! Thank you. I love you!

Your daughter’s letter is about the most precious thing I’ve read. How beautiful. Is she really only 11?? I also love that she used “sassy frass”.

Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Proverbs 31:28
