Two Years ago today.......

This is an old photo of my Grandfather,My Mom, My great grandmother and a cousin.
My Grandfather has been dead about 20 years and my great granny has been gone about 30 years, so this photo is old...

It was 2 years ago today, that my sweet Mom passed away.. I miss her so much and I think the only reason the pain has eased up, is because I try to only think of the times when she was happy and smiling, which was almost all of the time. Whenever I usually saw her, she had a wonderful smile on her face and her heart was always thinking of the good things.. I was so blessed to have her as a Momma..

I've decided to treat this day as one day closer to when I will someday get to see her again in Heaven. I know she is smiling down on me. I feel her everyday.

I hope all of you have a great weekend. It's sunny here and not too cold.I guess we are waiting until February to get any slush and ice around here. I know we won't get through the winter without it..

Stay safe, sweet peeps !

Bunches of hugs..

I'm very sorry to learn that you lost your sweet Mama just 2 years ago. She sounds like a positive person with a happy outlook on life. I think the way you're dealing with this loss is quite healing. Heaven is a Blessing to look forward to especially when we can see our dear family (and pets, I believe).

Hmmm...snow and slush coming up after this lovely weather??! You're scaring me!!

Take care. Cyber-hug.

You are in my thoughts. I have lost both my parents.

Sweet memories and picture of your dear Mom, Stephanie. Of course you miss her. My dear Grandma, who raised me, has been gone 20 years, and I still miss her. But she will always be in your thoughts and heart until you meet her again, one day. Loved ones always are.

Take good care, and God bless!

Dear Stephanie,

Those sweet memories are wonderful, aren't they? Sometimes I remember things about my mom and just have to laugh out loud. Like you, I miss her even after thirteen years. My happy thought is of my mom, my aunt and my grandma being in heaven with my son.

What a lovely tribute to your Mom...I lost my Dad 18 years ago and I can feel him with me every day and yea, I miss him more than words can ever describe, but knowing he's in heaven makes it some what easier.
love to you

So sweet about your Momma. I know you really miss her.

Hi Stephanie, I clicked on your blog when it was listed on someone's favorites list, because the name is so pretty. Your blog is pretty, too, lovely blue.

This is a lovely tribute to your mom. I lost my mom 8 years ago and think of her everyday. It sounds like we were both blessed to have good moms.

I like choosing a new daytimer each year, too, one of those fun traditions for the new year.

Be blessed.

I know how you feel about losing someone so close to you and yes the time we are away from them just makes our hearts grow fonder for Heaven. This was such a sweet tribute to your Mom. I know her love and sweet smile will always be with you.Cherish the memories.
Love & Hugs.

Your mother was a very pretty woman, Steph - I know that you loved her and miss her very much. And yes, she is looking down!

Sorry about being late to this post, but I've been off line most of the week, except to check e-mail real fast.

I hope that you are feeling better by now. I know that certain days are hard for me too...

Nancy said...

My heart goes out to you, Stephanie! I know the pain. My mom will be gone 5 years this March 1st. She lived with me, and I took care of her for a little over 2 years before she died.

Your photo is one to be cherished! I love old photos like that. They are all together and in a better place. Are you the little girl in the photo? I have been going through all of my mom's many, many photo albums while I have been laid up with bursitis in one knee. Now I have phlebitis in the other leg!

We have just had the one dusting of snow this winter so far. Arkansas is getting a bad ice storm right now from what I've read on some blogs from that state. So we have been very fortunate this winter, really.

Take care!

Beautiful picture..... beautiful memories.......... While reading your post I was reminded of the scripture that tells us

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.PHL 4:8

Good memories warm the heart while we are waiting..
