Two Special Moms





This will be my 3rd  Mother's Day without my Mom.  But, I am so thankful for the rich heritage and wonderful memories I have of her.  Never a day goes by that I do not think of her and wish that I could talk to her, but life goes on, just not as before. If you want to read more about my memories of my Mom you can find it here.




Another very special Mom was my sweet Mother-in-Law.  She was a gentle spirited lady, a woman of few words and she loved me.  I always felt blessed by our relationship with one another.  We loved each other mutually and made many precious memories together.


The Lord took both of our Mother's the same year.  My MIL went to be with the Lord on Jan. 1, 2008 after a lengthy illness.  My Mom went to be with the Lord on Dec. 1, 2008 after a massive stroke.  

I will always miss these two very special ladies but am grateful for the years they had and the memories we made.  Yes, they were two special Moms. 


I loved this quote and truly once your Mom has passed away, home is not the same.  So much of a home is a Mother.

May your Mother's Day be especially blessed!

  1. A sad beginning and a sad ending to 2008. ((HUGS)) I lost my mother in 1982 to a massive heart attack.
    It's just not the same when they are gone. My MIL has never lived near us so we have never celebrated Mother's Day together but she is a lovely woman and is doing very well at 83.

  2. What a sweet tribute to your mom and your MIL.

    My MIL and my mom both passed in the same year ... my MIL passing in August and my mom passing on Christmas Eve. My FIL passed the following January. It was a very difficult time for us.

    I miss my mom so much.

    Happy Mother's Day to you.

  3. Your husband really looks like his mother.

    Lovely post I'm sorry you're without your own mother and mother-in-law. And the separation from your daughter and grandchildren this time must be a bit of a sting. Hugs and prayers that you'll enjoy Mother's Day with a few people you love and who love you.
