A Gift for Mother's Day

This photo arrived in my inbox last night from a dear friend who I am taking very "small steps" towards hopefully meeting someday!   I still don't have a copy of her new book yet, but my sister-in-law (Hubby's only sister Melissa) received a signed copy from her husband, my brother-in-law Tom, for Mother's Day! 
I am so jealous excited for her!!  :-)  

Melissa is such a wonderful sister-in-law and I sure wish we didn't live nearly 3,000 miles apart!  Hopefully it won't be too long before we are able to see her and her family again. . . 

Happy Mother's Day Melissa!  We love you!!


  1. Hi, Jess!
    Happy Mother's Day, yourself!! I can honestly say my brother chose a wonderful wife and mother for his kids.
    Thanks for your blog post. I am so happy to have Elizabeth and Danielle's book - signed! Tom is such a sweetie and a thoughtful gift giver. But secretly I'm jealous that he met Elizabeth before I could! Oh, well, one of these days.
    Have a beautiful Mother's Day!
    I love you, too,

  2. Hi, Jessica, Happy Mother's Day! I was so excited to read your post. A dear friend of mine grew up with your husband and sister in-law in Nogales, AZ. She also went to school at Christendom and is a godparent to one of your sister-in-law's children. I have always heard wonderful things about Melissa and what an amazing Mom she is. I've always wanted to meet this incredible person, but only hear snippets through my friend. My friend follows my blog and saw that I follow yours. She recognized your husband in one of your posts and was so happy to see whom he had married and to read what a wonderful wife and mother you are! I'm so happy to "know" you & Melissa through my sweet friend and through your blog. Please say a prayer for my friend...she's not a mom, but is so close to my heart! God Bless your day & thanks for the beautiful post.:)

  3. Just got my copy this morning for Mother's Day!! SO excited!

    Happy Mother's Day!

  4. I trust you had a blessed Happy Mother's Day, Jessica! There's lots of people who'd love to meet you if you ever travel those 3,ooo miles east! :-)
