happy mother's day, 2008

happy mother's day to all the moms out there, especially my mom, who put up with a whole heck of alot raising my two younger sisters. well, okay, i guess i was a brat from time to time, too. i know i couldn't have asked for a better mom, though.

and happy mother's day to my wife, the mother of my children, who not only puts up with our two young boys, but, moreover, with this 32-year old little boy. i have had the tremendous privilege in my life to be surrounded by incredible examples of motherhood.
i have been nurtured, cared for, encouraged, fed, wiped (when i was a baby, and that one time...nevermind), prayed for, worried about, even smacked a few times when i needed it. thank you, mom, and thank you, shannon. happy mother's day!

Thanks for the nice comments. Truthfully, I have always found motherhood to be my greatest privelege and joy. No thanks needed, but good to hear. My cup runneth over.
