As you can tell from my post title, I'm getting ready to go to Hawaii!!
Okay, so I'm just kidding. But it's a very nice thought.
Friday night the kids and I went with David, Karen, Chris and Lacey to Cracker Barrel to eat.
Afterwards we were sitting outside in the rocking chairs enjoying the weather when my sister in law decided to teach Kari how to hula dance in order to prepare for Saturday. Very funny stuff.
So anyway, Saturday my mother in law was the guest speaker at a mother daughter banquet in Louisville and they had a Hawaiian theme. It was a lot of fun! My mother in law is such a good speaker and did an awesome job. She said some good things about me so I was happy!! LOL. They had these pineapple-kabob-thingies that were sticking out of whole pineapples. It was so pretty and they looked delicious. I have tried to make myself like pineapple and other various kinds of fruit but I can't do it!! So I didn't eat any but I'm sure they were good.
The kids had a blast too. Kari, Malachi and Trinity were so cute. I still think Malachi has a crush on Trinity although her daddy denies it!! (just kidding, Steven!)
I had a very happy Mother's Day and I hope everyone else did too! Kari sang a Mother's Day song in Sunday school and it was the cutest thing EVER!
I'm going to be a little sappy here. I sooo appreciate my mother and my mother in law. I've watched them both through the years and their walk with God inspires me. I've watched my mom go through some pretty rough stuff but her faith in God never wavered. The best piece of advice my mom ever gave me was this: God is faithful and God is good. That's it. She said no matter what we go through, no matter how unfair life is, no matter the circumstances....God is faithful and God is good. If you chew on that a while, it will register what it really means.
I've watched my mother in law over the past year very closely as she's faced things she never thought she'd have to face. She's proven faithful to God and has been a blessing to me. I don't know what I would do without her. I love both of you so much and I thank God for you!!!
I have TONS of pictures but it's taking too long to load them so you might get them over the course of the week!! :)
