Yesterday in church, I nearly won both of my usual Mother's Day awards... the one for having the youngest baby, and the other for having the most children present. (I have not yet managed to snag the award for oldest mom, try as I might).
Our dear pastor awarded me my flower for baby Bronwyn, and proceeded to the next question of "which mom has more than four children here today?" and realized, half-way through, that I was headed for a second bloom. He said "does anyone here, besides The Dutch People, have seven children?" Nobody raised a hand. Then he said, "does anyone here have MORE than seven children?" Not one hand went up. THEN he said, a bit hopeless, "does anyone here WISH they had more than seven children?" - One hand shot up. One belonging to Steadfast. ;)
The pastor chuckled and gave Steadfast the second blossom.
