mother's day


my mom



so many of my friends have lost their moms in
the past few years


i feel for them


my siblings and i are so very blessed
to still have our mom here with us


as a child...

our mom was the best


she raised 4 girls
 (and a brother who came later)

everyone in our town knew her

she grew up there...

she was our girl scout leader
so all my friends know her....





but not alot of people know what happened to her 20 years ago

**

my mom was diagnosed with a brain tumor

*

we though we were going to lose her

*

she was operated on the day after my youngest son was born


but.......

my mother also had a great faith..

she told us all that she was going to have the thing removed and come right home...

*

and that's exactly what she did

**

no one expected this..

she had a minimal chance of survival

*
they said they were going to keep her sedated for a few weeks
to let her ease back

**
she had other plans...

within hours of the operation,
she was awake and talking...

and within a week
she was home...

faith works wonders doesnt it??



this past year was my son's 20th birthday

reminding me that we have had 20 more years with my mom
than we would have had things turned our differently


even as an adult..
we need our moms

**

look at this picture

this is our family




in the past 20 years
there have been more grandchildren,
 great grandchildren,
and countless nieces and nephews
who would never have know her.........

we truly are blessed !

we love ya mom

happy mother's day

Your mom always has been so kind and patient, so accepting and loving. She is as gracious as she is pretty. We all are lucky to have her !

Thank your for sharing your sweet and uplifting story of your mom. Our family lost our mom 20 years ago and yes, so many babies born that we didn't get to share with her. Your family really is truly blessed.
