Mom's Birthday....




Today would have been Momma's 80th Birthday. I miss her so very much.. One thing though,She gave me some wonderful memories. She was the best momma ever!.She taught me about "unconditional love". A Love that no matter what, survives. To her, that was the Only kind of love... Any other kind of love, was just "Like" ...




I believe that.. Really I do.. None of us are perfect.And since I am a Christian, I think that we should forgive each other, when things are done wrong. I don't believe in holding grudges.. I got all of these beliefs from my sweet Mom. Sometimes, that sort of love can hurt....




This time of year is always a reflection time. it is true, that I have had some doubts about my beliefs, over this past year.. But there is a small voice in my head... telling me to hold on to what I believe.. Hold on to my faith.. even when it sometimes is so hard..




I hope all of you are taking this time of the year,to enjoy all the wonder of Life.. The smiles on the children's faces.. The little baby's that see the wonder of the Christmas lights....


My little grand niece,Loren met me at their door on Friday.. She is 2. She was so excited to show me the Christmas tree with the lights.. Her little precious face was full of wonder and excitement.. It was great!. Those times are so priceless.




God be with you and your families during this Holiday Season....


Merry Christmas and bunches of hugs.....

Oh, Steph. Your momma is truly with the angels, you know. And sometimes I feel like you're our very own angel here on Earth. Bless you, sweetheart.
