Happy Mother's Day and a new haircut....................






Almost 20 years ago God allowed me to be a first time mother...In 2002, my life crumbled around me as I knew it with a 6 months to a year to live prognosis after finding cancer....God gave me a peace He can only give while allowing me to go into remission and then allowing me (4 years later) to become a mother again 16 years after the first time...So every Mother's Day and every birthday is just a "gift for Jenny" personally from God....There is no greater joy than being a mother and having them 16 years apart makes life pretty interesting most of the time!!LOL...With one wanting to spread her wings and the other doesn't want me out of his sight......And even getting a good picture in the backyard is a challenge....But we did manage to get a few and then head to the park for a picnic.....

But before the park, Taylor took a picture of my new haircut....ALOT shorter than expected, but good for the summer and my hair grows fast!!!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful blessed Mother's Day!!!!~~big hugs, Jen

Do women ever NOT talk about hair? The shorter cut is perky and adorable, as well as youthful. Hope you enjoy it. Your kids look so happy. Nice pics.

You and your daughter look like sisters!!! Really, I had to look twice to see who the mother was and who the daughter was. Great haircut....I love a short cut, so free and light in the summer!

You have so much to be thankful for on Mother's Day. God Bless You!

Came across your blog from behind my red door blog. I know what you mean by God`s peace coming over you and then going into remission. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I too experienced God`s peace and went into remission. I noticed I was slowly getting better. I take no meds and wouldn`t even at the beginning. God has truly blessed me and you.
