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
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,
and countless nieces and nephews
who would never have know her.........
we truly are blessed !
happy mother's day
