Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day is a wonderful day, I love to reflect on what a blessing being a mother is. I have 5 beautiful children, plus now several of them are married, so I get bonus children too!! Of course, you know, I have 2 perfect grandchildren with one more coming this month - wow - "an embarrassment of riches".
Jeff and Halie are such sweethearts and we love to spend time with them. Jeff is working hard and really enjoying his job - he places Dr.s and nurses in temporary jobs where they are needed all over the country. Halie is working at Costco, much to Stacy's delight, he always wanted one of his kids to work there.
Amanda flits in and out over here and we love to see her when she comes by. She does really well at her job at Albertson's and has been there over 3 years. She is so organized and talented - I know they really appreciate her at work, just like we do. She is still a favorite of her niece and nephew.
Brooke and Ben continue to bless us with lots of visits and those beautiful grandchildren. Brooke is so helpful and kind and Ben just graduated from UVU. Ben is pursuing racquetball in his spare time and is quite good. Brooke takes wonderful care of those children and her home.
Doug and Tricia are busy being newlyweds. Doug is at UVU and also working at Albertson's. He is studying to become a nurse anesthetist & Tricia is a nurse at Primary Children's Hospital. We love it when they come to visit us too. They will be moving around the corner next month, they are buying our duplex, we are so excited.
Shane has started at UVU this semester, taking a Criminal Justice class, he wants to become a police officer. He and Becca are still dating, she is at BYU. He is very helpful around here, carrying tables for me, mowing lawns, etc. and we love and appreciate him.
I am so grateful for the many, many blessings and for my precious family. Happy Mother's Day to me!
