  Words fail me. How do you describe someone who is incomparable? She is the epitome of sacrificial love, and her commitment to family is unparalleled.  This past week I traveled back to the little town I still call home where we spent five very special days together. We laughed. We cried. We remembered. We talked about the past, the present, and the future. We laughed and cried some more.
  Without fail every time I am with her, I learn something new from her as well as something new about her. She never ceases to amaze me. She is aging and life is handing her some additional challenges which in her inimitable way...she is meeting head on. Despite the fact that her world has grown much smaller, she remains positive and upbeat and thankful for each day that she lives. She is doing what she has always done... making the most of what she has. And the love keeps multiplying. I am especially missing her this morning and wishing that I could wrap my arms around her one more time. It's ten am. More than likely she is sitting in her chair, knitting up a storm and watching one of her shows. She is keeping her hands busy and her heart strong. It is her way. The way that she lives. I just want to whisper in her ear what she already knows....I love you, dear Momma.





  1. That was so sweet it made me cry!

  2. I love her beyond words. We all speak with our hearts, just like she taught us to do. Even though we are all individuals, we are so much a part of her. Many times in my younger years I resented that, but as time rolls on too quickly, I find that I am "JUST like her" and I feel honored. Love you and miss you!

  3. These old pictures are so precious! And what you wrote is beautiful.
    I wish I had more old pictures of my own family.

  4. Ah. And you know what is so striking to me is that these snapshots are also of my mama. : )
    What a gift. Life.
