I love this poem

You can't over-emphasize the power of a good example.

The Echo

Twas a sheep not a lamb
That strayed away in the parable
Jesus told.

A grown-up sheep that strayed away
From the ninety and nine in the fold.
And why for the sheep should we seek
and earnesty hope and pray?

Because there is danger when sheep
go wrong
They lead the lambs astray.

Lambs will follow the sheep, you know
Wherever the sheep may stray.
When sheep go wrong
It won't take long til the lambs are
as wrong as they.

And so with the sheep we earnestly
For the sake of the lambs today.
For when the sheep are lost
What a terrible cost
The lambs will have to pay.

Happy Mother's Day

So, here it is, May already, and a time to remember and celebrate our mothers. If your mother is still with you, I hope you took the time to wish her a happy day and tell her how much you love her. This is a photo of my mom, her husband, and my first son.

My Mom had been gone for quite somem time, and while I always miss her, I miss her most on Mother's Day and wish she was here so I could tell her one more time how much I love her.

I had a wonderful Mom. I don't remember her ever yelling at me, only loving me. She was a fun mom and by the time I was a mother, she was my best friend. She was also a wonderful grandmother to my kids, and I've tried to be just like her. My mom had asthma really bad, but it didn't slow her down. She would be in the hospital one day, and taking me and my kids to Disneyland the next.

God bless you. I miss you.
