Isn’t she absolutely gorgeous?! And she is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside! My mother is the epitome of the Proverbs 31 woman, who lives all of life with integrity, grace, and an abundance of love…for her children, grands, great grands, her friends…and above all else her Lord! Oh, how my momma loves Jesus!
Thank-you, Momma, for loving our Daddy well; for raising us with unconditional love (even though we certainly were not/are not always very likeable!), and for exemplifying how to put our faith and trust in an unseen God so that the blessings He has to offer will be showered upon us! We owe it all TO God, THROUGH you!
I love you so much! I celebrate 80-years young with you! Or, if you do not want to embrace 80, we can just go straight to 81, how ‘bout that?!

I made my infamous Wedding Cookies, and thought I would include the recipe for your enjoyment! (Please excuse the photos---they are far from perfect!)
