Mother's Day is coming up, so I wanted to take a minute and post about the "moms" in my life. Today we're going to start with Marietta, my mother-in-law.
I could not have been blessed with a finer woman for a mother-in-law. She is so selfless and loves to serve other people. She raised a fine family, my favorite of which is her youngest son.
She is a also a terrific grandmother. The kids love spending time with her. Some of my favorite memories are watching her cook with kids, making the little ones put on shower caps to prevent their hair from falling into the food. It is too funny!
If I could tell you one thing about Marietta, I would tell you that she is a really, really good person, although I don't think she knows it! She has had many trials in her life, but she continues to persevere and serve the Lord. She is a fine example to me of charity.
So, a little early, let me just say that I hope she has a wonderful Mother's Day.
And for those of your who don't know, we named our Emma after Marietta...Emma's full name is actually Mari Emma. So I scrapbooked this page for her.
