Celebrating Mom

It is very hard to believe when you look at her, but Mom is nearing 70!  So we had a good time this past weekend gathering around her and "rising up to call her blessed."

First everyone took turns bringing her a flower stem and saying one thing they loved about her:

 Then after cupcakes...
... we gathered around a campfire to watch the kids do dangerous things tell Mom more things we loved about her:

Each family read a letter they had written about memories and ways Mom has loved, sacrificed, influenced, taught, given to us, and modeled a life that glorifies God.

We gave her a tray that has Psalm 23:6 on it -- a verse that Mom has lived out!  Everywhere she goes, goodness and mercy follow her.  We are so grateful for the legacy she passes on to the next generations!
