Me and mom

Happiness or sadness, the person I want most to share it with is my mom.

My mom and her mom (grandma) 1989

When a daughter loses her mother, she doesn’t stop being that mother’s little girl. I lost my mom very suddenly over ten years ago and today is her birthday. I am writing to celebrate her and what she meant to me. It’s a privilege and an honor call her my mom, Happy Birthday, Mom!


Me and mom (1989)

She inspired me to be brave and courageous, kind and giving, honest and dedicated. There are days my hearts aches to just be held in her arms one more time. Then, there are days of joy, wanting to call her on the phone for a chat and share my day with her.

Today, she will be celebrating her tenth birthday in heaven; if such things happen. Either way, in my mind she is and I know it’s glorious. I would love to hug and kiss her one more time, but for now I will hold onto our last goodbye.

From the Gospel of John

“Very truly, I tell you, you will weep and mourn, but the world will rejoice; you will have pain, but your pain will turn into joy. So you have pain now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.”

John 16:20, 22

Paul’s Letter to Corinth and Achaia

“For our slight, momentary affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure, because we look not at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen, for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal. So we do not lose heart. Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day.” —2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Interesting bit of history about this specific spot, my parents were both baptized right under this bridge in September 1963.

Thank you for visiting my blog, I am blessed by your support.
