~never in the picture~

I had a really "hard" time finding a picture for this post.
I wanted so badly to convey
that today is a
one - of - a - kind - day.

Not everyone is blessed as I am!

I could find plenty of these 

she has graciously shared with me


she loves taking pictures of Her Creator's beautiful creations

those kind of things you don't get to see everyday
and then the loves of her life,
her children
Pr 31:28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed;
but, rarely do you find her in a picture
~But, I searched high & low and found ONE~

I must share that she is the most wonderful
mother-in-law a girl could ever be graced with.

I've gained much Godly wisdom from her,
in the 24 years of marriage to her oldest.

The best Momie' (mom-me) to our two sons.

Encourager to Young Women.
She truly expresses the words
of Proverbs 31.

Today is her birthday,
Happy Birthday,

She makes her rounds reading posts in the blogging world,
hoping one day soon she begins her very own.
I'll be the first to introduce her!

This is precious. My mother-in-law is 95 years old. I have been a mother-in-law for five years now...I have so much more respect for her now that I am walking in her shoes.
The pictures are the clouds...He is great in all seasons of our life!

Karen, thank you so much for sharing this sweet post! It has been very interesting for me to feel like I have found several additional "mother-in-law-ish" friends here in blogland who provide me with that support and encouragement and YOU are one of them my dear friend! :-)
Blessings to you today,

What a lovely post! This reminds me of Ruth and Naomi. So precious.

I hope your mother in law had a wonderful birthday! I've been blessed with mine, too, and she has been a mother to me after mine died. God is good!
