The life and times of the Godfrey ten.

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms out there. I know of no one that worries more, loves more, works more, prays more, cries more, stresses more, or is more proud of their kids. I know in my house growing up and in my house now, mom is the glue, nay the concrete that keeps the family together. I know as the kids in our house grow older they navigate closer to mom, they trust mom and mom is their comforter. I really don’t know what the heck I am even doing here? Blogging? Maybe that’s my role.

We always try to make Mother’s Day special for Tra, but it seems to me that special to her is spending time with her family, driving, dining and just chilling. So one of our traditions is to drive to Homer, walk the beach, play in the park and eat of course. It is usually a relaxing and enjoyable day for mom, no dishes no mess. Unfortunately today we could not because today is the day we have to drop Jo off for her visit, a terrible Mother’s Day event. However Tra did not let that dampen her day, except for maybe a few moments.


We love ya mommy!

 I know we have a lot of moms that read this blog, perhaps wondering about a family of ten and how they do it. But perhaps being a mother of one can be just as difficult if not more than being a mother of eight. Remember the rules of percentage!  Rules of Percentage  Although we may be a somewhat unique family in America, we are just a family much like all of you doing the very best we can by putting God as the center of our life and by trusting him to guide us in the raising of our kids. It is truly enjoyable to share our life experiences with all of you and to all you mothers out there, my hat is off to you and I truly do not know how you do it. May God Bless you on this your day, oh and maybe the kids can clean the house for you today, ours did. (with a little prodding from dad… hey that’s another role for me!)

    That picture of Tracy and Jo in bed sleeping and cuddling is sooooo cute. Is everything still going well with Jo? We are still praying and we won’t stop.
