To Ethan, Love Mommy

To my dear son,
The day I met your dad, I found the beginning
of my purpose in life.
Oh the joy and fun of being his wife!
I was fine and content to be in that role for a while,
Because our life held so many reasons to smile.
But a few years down the road,
We found out our story wasn't quite finished being told.
Our perfect little two, was soon to become three
All because of you.
A wife I knew how to do and how to be,
But thoughts of being a mom seemed
a surreal journey for me.
You were here in what feels like an eye's blink,
And I was amazed at how easily I didn't have to think.
Right away, each of your needs I knew how to meet.
And, as proof you are your daddy's son,
you swept me off my feet.
On this my first Mother's Day,
I've not much else than this to say...
Ethan, you've made me a mom
And, it's an honor I'll cherish each day life goes on.
I love you,
Mommy

Adam's presence at the sports banquet picnic last night was such a blessing. The love that his basketball team has for him and the respect that he's earned are so evident. It is true that the Lord has blessed you with a wonderful family. Can't wait to see you at church tomorrow on your first mother's day! God bless you all, love the Hunts

Kasey,

I can only the imagine the joy and the tears you must feel on this your first Mother's Day. The Lord has truly blessed you with a precious gift and even though we can't often see or understand God's perfect will for our lives, we can trust that His hand is always gently guiding. Rest in the peace of knowing that God does have a plan for your sweet family.

"I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for." Jeremiah 29:11 (MSG)

You are in our prayers!
