Celebrating with Menudo!

 It's menudo!  The kids aren't being bratty-it really does smell that bad when it's cooking.  It's my husband's favorite dish, because he grew up in a Mexican home where menudo was standard holiday fare.  It makes him think of happy times. (It does taste a lot better than it smells.)

I love him.

Happy Birthday Sweetheart!

New Building!

Bro. Pedro, Bro. Ryan, and Bro Ismael
You might notice that both Ryan and I are bright pink-we went doorknocking the day before and forgot sunblock.

I'm so thankful for the opportunity we've had to be part of the planting of this church!

May the gospel continue to be preached from this spot for generations to come!

Happy Mother's Day (and I'm NOT late!)

Here mother's day is tomorrow, which means for my multicultural children, they must honor their American heritage, and their Mexican heritage.  Absolutely.  Yesterday I got cards from my kids, and my sweet oldest daughter made coffee and brought me some. (I'm not ready to trust her cooking in the kitchen without help.)

 My husband says I have to pick one day.  I think he needs to open his mind!  What about embracing the good in other cultures and all?  Well, I'm going out with him today, so I better not complain!

For the record, I love being a mom.  I had a sweet, humble, hardworking, dedicated mom that I try to be like as much as I can, and this journey has been one I would not trade for anything.  It's a privilege indeed!
