Momma and Me

Good Morning Company Girls, since this week-end is Mother's Day, I wanted to share a few photos and memories with you of my precious Momma.

Momma and me when I was about 4 months old


 This will be my second Mother's Day since my Mom's death. I can say that this one will certainly be much easier than last year.  As folks told me, the first year will be your hardest and they were so right.  My Mom's death was very sudden and I had no time whatsoever to prepare and it took me most of the first year to accept the fact that she was really gone from this earthly life.

A dear lady told me after Mom died that I would never get over it, but I would get through it.  Those were and are such true words.  God provided for me just what I needed, when I needed it to bring me through to the other side of my grief.  I cannot imagine facing such a loss without HIM.  And, having the assurance of reuniting with her one day gives me such peace.

 It brought back such fond memories as I went throw old photos.  And, of course, it also brought a chuckle or two as I saw how hair and clothes styles had changed over the past 57 years.

I can remember so well as a little girl thinking that I had the prettiest Momma in all the world.  She sewed everything that the two of us wore and I loved everything she made for me and wore it very proudly.  And, funny, but I also remember wearing the same dress 2-3 times in the same week and never thinking one thing about it.  And, I remember very well owning just one pair of shoes and wearing them until the soles were bare.  My, how times have changed!

I feel so blessed for the rich heritage my Momma left me. She was such a Godly woman and desired nothing more than to be the wife and Mom that the Lord would have her be. She took her role as homemaker seriously and made our home as much of a sanctuary as she possibly could.  She prayed diligently for her children and wanted nothing more for us than God's best.  

I feel quite certain that her crown is filled with jewels and that upon her arrival to heaven she was met by the Master who likely said, "well done thy good and faithful servant."
