The  picture above is a picture of my mother when she was around 17 years old. She was so pretty and so full of life ahead of her. She was a great mother, I wish I had been mature enough to think to tell her how much I loved her and appreciated all she did for us, her family. I was 29 when she passed away, had just had a baby, my third child and just so "busy" with life. She knew I loved her and I think she knew we thought she was a great mother but I wish I had told her. Mother died 5 days after Jamie was born so it is easy to know how long she has been gone. It has been THIRTY years ago this past week. THIRTY YEARS!!! Wow, hard to believe for one thing that Jamie is thirty and two that she has been gone that long. I know someday I will be with her, my dad and both of my babies that have gone before us. I miss them all but so glad I have that assurance. Thank you Mother for all of your sacrifices for me and most of all thank you Jesus for your sacrifice.

  1. I can't imagine what it will be like when my own mother dies. I know it's something that we all must face but I am dreading it.

    Your mother was so beautiful and I'm sure she must have been so proud to watch you blossom as a mother.

    And such a comfort to know that you will see her again one day.
