I've had some really heartwarming mommy moments this last week.  One in particular I have to share.

Now, I will admit that there are some songs we sing in church that I like better than others.  I like them all, but some just move my spirit.  I was in church with Elizabeth on my left & Henry on my right, and this song started to play.  It's one of my favorites!  My heart was so full, and then I looked out of my peripheral vision.

It's crazy town over here, and needless to say, I'm the mayor.

Celebrating Life!
