Welcome to the Family Room

I want to introduce you to my family so you can visit with them.  We have 3 daughters who are lucky to be married to 3 great men.  Each of them has  children.  Please click on the names below to visit them.

 I loved you from the very start,
You stole my breath, embraced my heart.
Our life together has just begun,
You're a part of me my little one.
As mother with child, each day I grew,
My mind was filled with thoughts of you.
I'd daydream of the things we'd share,
Like late-night bottles and teddy bears.
Like first steps and skinned knees,
Like bedtime stories and ABC's.
I thought of things you'd want to know,
Like how birds fly and flowers grow.
I thought of lessons I'd need to share,
Like standing tall and playing fair.
When I first saw your precious face,
I prayed your life be touched with grace.
I thanked the angels from above,
And promised you unending love.
Each night I lay you down to sleep,
I gently kiss your head and cheek.
I count your little fingers and toes,
I memorize your eyes and nose.
I linger at your nursery door,
Awed each day I love you more.
Through misty eyes, I dim the light,
I whisper "I love You" each night.
I loved you from the very start,
You stole my breath, embraced my heart.
As mother and child our journey's just begun,
My heart's yours forever little one.

Mothers, touch your children,
Fathers, hug them tight,
Let them know you love them,
morning, noon, and night.

Put your arms around them,
hold them near to you.
Feel the beating of their hearts,
the life that you made new.

Roll around the floor with them,
tease and laugh and play.
Listen to what they'll tell you,
they have so much to say.

Take time to get to know them,
see the colors in their eyes,
Appreciate that person,
that deep inside them lies.

Let them run their fingers,
through your hair, and down your face.
Fill their hearts with words of praise,
make home their favorite place.

Cuddle with them on the couch,
and watch a tv show.
Sing with them, or share a book,
and help their world to grow.

Take a walk into the park,
hold each other's hands.
Smell the flowers, feed the ducks,
build castles in the sand.

Mothers, touch your children
Fathers, hug them tight.
Show them what a gift they are;
to love them feels so right.
