As I grow older, I realize that I am probably more like my mom then I think. I have a love for hospitality, enjoy providing meals to families that need them, love writing cards of encouragement to friends and people that need them....all things that I remember my mom doing as I grew up. She was always quick to volunteer and loved being a part of a community. I am so grateful that she took us to our church, even before my dad was a Christian. If it weren't for my church, I wouldn't be Mrs. Brett Jensen and Emersyn and Everett's mommy. I am thankful that she made faith a priority even when she had to do it on her own.
I am so thankful for my Emersyn Grace. Even though there are days when she makes me want to tear my hair out, I love her sweet spirit and imagination. She is the best of me and the worst of me. She makes me want to be a better person and a woman worth modeling herself after as she grows up.
I am thankful for my precious Everett David, the best surprise ever. The Lord knew I needed a sweet little boy. Silly me, I thought I was only cut out to be a mom to girls. But Everett David has won my heart and I'm just smitten with him.
