My Mom



Another year has passed without my mom. November 4th was 15 years since I last saw her radiant smile and heard her contagious laugh. November 4th, 2011 was the first year that will pass where I have spent more time without her than with her. My mom died when I was 14. A far cry from the 29 that I am today, but the pain that accompanies that type if loss is one that will sting no matter how much time has passed. I wish she was here to meet my husband, to see my beautiful children, and to know that all the work that went into raising a strong-willed, stubborn child was not without its reward. As I think about my life since her passing, I shed a tear at how much she has missed.. I shed a tear at how much wisdom I have missed.. She is all I hope to be.. An amazing mom, a wonderful wife, and woman who loved the Lord. . I know one day, in the Glorious Heaven, with our God, we will be together again.... Until then, I will remember her like this...........

You're doing a wonderful job with all of those things, my dear friend. I know your momma is proud! You're also doing a fabulous job with being a great friend. I love you!

Your mom is so very proud of you and the Godly woman you've become. I'm sure she smiles often looking down on you. Someday, she'll get to meet your beautiful family and tell you in person how proud she is of you. She was an absolutely beautiful woman, inside and out... always welcoming people into her home and making them feel like family.You remind me so much of what I remember your mom being like. Thinking of you often Kim.

Everything you said about your Mom is exactly what we would all say about you! I know if she could she would tell you that she is SO proud of the woman you've become! Thank you for sharing the picture, she was so gorgeous and you look so much like her, both in the picture, and your words that described her. I am so blessed to call you my friend and sister in Christ, Love you!
