This blog is about a mom who loves her boys and adores her husband. The entries are just about how my husband and I muddle through life trying to raise our boys as men of Christ in this crazy world.

Day 100 (50) Big John
April 8th: Seven years ago to the day is the day I lost my dad, John. After a long battle with kidney cancer the day came that God called him home. It is funny that no matter how many years pass, I think I miss him more today than ever. As children we need our parents to provide food, shelter, clothing and lessons learned. However, I think as adults we need our parents more for friendship and knowledge. As an adult, I have come to understand why our parents did the things they did and how they did them. There is a respect and different kind of bond that is formed. I know there are very few days that go by that I don't think of him. I wish my boys could have gotten the chance to know him too. Miss you Dad. (Dad holding Hayden the day he was born with Zach by his side.)
I am a working mom of 2 busy boys and one crazy husband. Spend most of my time when I am not working as a nurse things with my family. We are very involved in our boys lives from school, church to sporting events.
