Happy Mothers Day to ALL

This is the last good picture I have of my Momma. She then came to live with me and I had a whole year to treasure her in my home. Look at all of the children that she loved! We were poor but rich in love. Until her dieing day she loved me, encouraged me, accepted me as an equal and was the best Mother/Friend that anyone could possibly wish for. She was NEVER unkind, always supportive and sweet. I miss her so during this time of grief. BUT I believe she wanted me to CELEBRATE her life. She about died five times when the doctors gave her no hope. She was a survivor! She was blind at three. (Her Mother gave her away to her Grandmother because it was too much to cope with.) She had polio at 13 and was in an iron lung for months. She lived through cancer. She "lived" her walk with the Lord and led the way for her children. She buried two of her sons in the same year, the oldest & youngest. When she came to live with me they told her that she had only 3 months at the most, six months would be out of the question and one year would be a miracle!!!. One year to that day she wanted to go see her doctor. Her quote to him was "I just came to show you a miracle". She lived three more months. My Mother was a blessing to anyone who came in contact with her. I praise the Lord for that last year in my home...nothing could ever take away that wonderful time....

Next is a picture of their wedding ( 16 yrs old. 25 years/50 years/ 63 years ( there last year together on earth)
Today I honor this wonderful women who just happened to be my Mother...I do miss her so...Sharon

Sharon, I wish I could give you a hug right now. Although I still have my mother I lost my father to heart disease. I was only 18 at the time and have so missed him being a part of my life. I know your mom is so proud of you. I pray you feel the Lord's arms of comfort around you today! Thanks for sharing your mother and your story with us. Hugs Gerri
