Happy Mother's Day!

Today is surely one of my most joyous Mother's Days ever. To have my son Eric home from the hospital and the four us together again is by far the best gift. We went to church together this morning for the first time in three months, and that was SO special. Our church family welcomed Eric back with love, hugs, handshakes, smiles, and applause.

Ever since the boys were infants, I've had a simple Mother's Day tradition of getting my photo taken with Eric and Andrew. When they were ten, I put together a collage of all ten Mother's Days. Fun to see how they've grown. The photo below was taken this morning at church. We're all squinting in the bright sunlight, but we're happy.

I'm so glad to hear that Eric's doing better!
I know I haven't been commenting on your blog, but my mother reads it and she relates all the news to us. It's always such a blessing to hear good news about Eric.
By the way, Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day, Angie! What a happy picture of you and the boys. Glad Eric could attend church with you, Andrew, and Bob. He even looks like he is beginning to gain weight. May the days get better and better.

Love, bev
