Happy Monday ladies! We had a wonderful weekend although our Sunday weather was a little chilly. I’m so over the cool weather.
I wanted to let you know that EVEREVE is having a sale and I’m sharing some Mother’s Day pictures. I snapped a picture with my kids yesterday afternoon.
Cory, our son, lives in northern Kentucky and is an attorney, our daughter, Courtney is a teacher by profession but is a stay-at-home mom at this time.
I mentioned that our weather was cool, so I wore this dress from Amazon to church. I wore the dress (I’m wearing a size 4) with these earrings, shoes (camel color is sold out) and I carried this handbag(linen color). I shared the dress with you in January when I wore it with boots.
Later in the afternoon, we headed to my sister’s house to celebrate my niece and nephews birthday. I changed into something a little more casual.
I’ve realized that I rarely get a picture with my brother, so I made sure that I got a picture with him and my sister this weekend. He’s my baby brother, and Traci is my younger sister, which makes me the oldest. Haha!
This dress is 50% off!
Beauty For the Heart~~I always feel like I can breathe a sigh of relief, the day after Mother’s day. I made it, another one without my sweet mom. It is easier than the first year, but it’s always a bittersweet day.
Yesterday, my brother shared the poem he wrote for my mom before she passed away. A flood of memories came to my mind as I remembered the weeks we spent with mom after we found out she had terminal cancer.
My brother Blake finished the poem the last day mom was on the earth. He read it to her as she was taking her last breaths, but I know she heard him. I know my mom left this earth knowing she was loved and adored by her children, her husband, and so so many family and friends.
There is None Better!
I hear people brag about their moms, but if they ever met mine, they would know. There is none better.
You think you know a Christian that talks the talk and walks the walk? Well, let me introduce you to my mom. There is none better.
I always thought the best way to describe a Christian is “Servant.” You should meet my mom. There is none better.
Do you know someone who is unselfish? Puts everyone above themselves? Would give you anything they had? I call her Wanda Faye, she’s my mom, and trust me; There is none better.
I’ve known her for 37 years. I’ve seen her faithfulness. I’ve gotten up at 5 in the morning and found her reading her bible. I’ve watched her prepare to teach bible studies. This isn’t just a bias. I’m telling you. There is none better.
She’s fighting cancer now. She even does that selflessly and gracefully. I can’t tell you how many cards she has received. What does my mom do? She uses all the energy she has to try and write everyone back. Do I really need to do any more convincing? There is none better.
If you’ve been fortunate enough to meet my mom you know what I mean. If she’s touched your hand, smiled that sweet smile, told you she loved you, told you she was praying for you, well consider yourself blessed…she meant every word. There is none better.
If the Lord does decide to take her home before we are ready. I can’t say I blame him. He knows what I do. There is none better.
**The Lord took our mom home on September 22, 2009. She is missed more than she could ever imagine!
Have a blessed day!
