She is now the confident, competent default manager of our home when I'm not here, a good cook and wonderful baker, laundry washing, nose wiping, diaper changing beloved big sister to her 7 younger siblings. She is a lover of Country and Bluegrass music, enjoys Hank Williams and Josh Turner, horses, gardening, canning, writing, photography and stealing all my clothes so that I don't have anything to wear. :-)
Raising children can be a worrisome thing, at least for me as I am a natural worrier. It is a relief to see your children turn out well, not perfect, but striving to walk in the light that they've been given. I am a thankful Mother to be able to see the day when my children love and thank me for the way they were raised, it is a sweet, sweet reward!
I love you Katie!!!
