Happy Mother's Day Darlene!!

I am also blessed to have a new mom this year! Darlene Johnson/Mom/soon-to-be Grandma (again not by us :)), is a great mother-in-law!

If you have read my precious husband's story of how we met, you know that his mom is to thank for introducing me to my wonderful husband. I will never be able to repay her for the gift of her son!

Darlene is more generous than anyone I have ever met. If she hears of a need somewhere she is the first person to try to meet that need. Phil, my father-in-law, is hopeless without her. She is a master in the area of submission. She works tirelessly to serve her family. 

I cannot wait to see her in the role of Grandma! She loves children and I am so excited for her to be the Grandma of our future children (key word: Future). 

Pecadillo loves to tell people how his mom has always supported him and his brothers no matter what hobby or craft they pursued. She is loved by all of those who know her. I am so honored to have her as my mother-in-law!

I love you Darlene/Mom!


  1. Susie,
    What a beautiful sentiment. Your mother has taught you well. What a beautiful way to honor God as well as your husband, by honoring and loving his mother. Alot of women just don't get the importance of this and stuggle with competition and power plays through out their marriage. How truly blessed you are to have both a wonderful Mom and Mom-in-law.
    Love you girl!

  2. I think your Mother-In-Law is wonderful, too! She must have so many people in her life, yet she makes each of them (even me, who is just an aquaintence, really) feel so special, loved, and valued!

  3. Soobs--I've loved all of your posts. You are such a great writer and what you wrote about both your moms is beautiful. Keep writing!

  4. '28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
    29 "Many women have done excellently,
    but you surpass them all."
    30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
    but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
    31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
    and let her works praise her in the gates."
    Proverbs 31:28-31 (ESV)

    Susie - Posts of two main women in your life - Pec's mom & your mom - led me straight to Prov.31. How blessed both you & J are to have such GODLY MOTHERS AND MOTHER-IN-LAWS. The LORD bless and keep you & J.
