Linda is a hands-on Grandma! She gets right in there with the kids and PLAYS!!
When Mailee was born, Linda was there to experience the birth and help out for a few weeks. It was a great time in our relationship to get to know each other one on one! I felt showered with Linda's gifts and talents in the areas of servant hood and food preparation extraordinaire! She really knows how to work hard and do the exact things that need to be done. I really admire these qualities. And everything she makes (to eat) tastes incredible:)
I am so thankful for the way that Linda (and Don) raised their 5 incredible kids and that I am the girl who God has chosen to bestow the gift of these amazing siblings and husband!! What a fantastic family to be a part of!
Linda's creativity blesses us in surprising ways. Here are all the kids dressed up as Santa's at our family Christmas last year. This was Mom's idea. She put us in groups each group had one child and we had to deck them out like Santa...it was hilarious, fun and an awesome memory.
One of the biggest strengths that Linda brings to our family is her passion for Christ and her commitment to pray! I love this picture. Again, what a blessing to be a part of a family who believes that God's Word and the promises in it are true...a family that can pray together and support each other through the challenges and changes of life. Thank you Mom for your indispensable role in this family and for the precious person that you have become to me over the last 10 years:)
Happy Birthday (late...of course but we won't focus on that:)
