Quick intro by Courtney: I can’t post my mother’s first entry without saying something. This humble, precious saint isn’t dying to blog because she doesn’t feel like THE wisest, best mother of all time. I am here to tell you as the receipient of her love and encouragement for 35 years – she is exactly who we need to hear from. She wasn’t perfect and I haven’t met a mother that is. However, she LOVED us so well and still does. She is supportive beyond belief and so precious and perfect with her words. I just had to let you sneak in her journal entries and little notes (that I get often) and feel the LOVE of Meese (what my kids call her). Enjoy!
