EVEREVE Sale and Mother’s Day

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.

EVEREVE Sale and Mother's Day 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.

EVEREVE Sale and Mother's DayLater 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!

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and, Instagram.

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!

Tell Me What You Think! leave a comment...

  1. You have such a lovely family! I łove all the outfits! Good choice about keeping the farm. Grass fed beef is the best!

  2. WoW I didn’t know that you and Traci had a brother. its not easy being the oldest but someone has got to do! lol love the looks. wish it was warmer here on the east coast. i had think anything other than a sweater right brrr

  3. Oh, that is such a beautiful poem your brother wrote. I know how difficult loosing a parent can be. Thanks for sharing your beautiful family pictures. I’m glad you had everyone there with you. That is the best gift a Mother could have. 🙂

  4. My husband and his 4 siblings bought the family farm when his parents passed away. The younger brother wanted to farm it and couldn’t afford to do that on his own. Of course, you need to be careful to do everything legally correct. BUT I’m happy to report that, 5 years in, they are closer as siblings than they have ever been! I’m praying you are similarly blessed!

  5. What a beautiful sweet poem and thought-filled tribute to your mom! Thank you for sharing and also the pictures of your beautiful family! Blessings!

  6. “Her children arise and call her blessed.” (even after God’s called her to her heavenly home. Now this the legacy of a Proverbs 31 woman! Beautiful, and thank you for sharing. I lost my Mom this past January, and in my heart, there was none like her either! Maybe our Mom’s are sharing stories about us right now! Hugging you in my heart!

  7. Beautiful poem. Made me cry; what a special Momma. Hugs and love to you and your precious family. <3

  8. Cyndi,
    Thank you for sharing your brother’s beautiful poem. It was nice to see a picture of him, too, since I feel like I “know” you and Traci from following your blogs.

  9. Oh Cyndi thank you so much for sharing your moms poem with me (us) I needed to hear this and brings back so many Godly memories of my Mom who passed away, September 26, 2014. My sisters and I (I am the oldest) miss her very much but know we will meet her again one day soon! Have an awesome Monday and rest of the week. I look forward to hearing from you every day😘.

    I pray God blesses you each and every day.

  10. That poem brought tears for sure–but what a lovely tribute to your Mom! Thanks for sharing that with us. Those sandals from Rack Room are adorable!

  11. What a loving tribute to your mother!
    My husband and I bought our family farm. We rent out the crop ground to a neighbor. It’s nice to call it the farm and all the memories it holds.

  12. What a beautiful poem and tribute to your mom. ❤️

    So can we call you Farmer Cyndi? Lol. I’m sure Wayne and his family are glad to keep that in the family.

    Have a blessed day!

  13. You looked lovely in all the pictures and it was nice to meet your family in pictures! Your brother’s poem brought tears to my eyes! It so reminds me of my Mom. Have you ever heard the song “If I could Hear my Mother Pray again?” It always brings tears, too. Thanks for all you do!

  14. Wow… what a poem and what a legacy your mom left. There couldn’t be a better legacy to leave then one that shows your life for the lord and unconditional love for others. I too miss my mom and know I am what I am today because of her faith and love:) We spent mother’s Day in the states, and I found the most beautiful floral jumpsuit I’m going to wear to our daughters wedding rehearsal:) it’s so nice to still have this time with our grown children.
    Blessings and congrats on the farm . What a wonderful idea.

    1. What a beautiful poem and tribute to your Mother. What a special gift from God. It would be so great if all mothers could be like your’s
      Love the red dress.
      Enjoy the farm.🐷🐓🐓🐓🐐🐐🐥🐥🐥

  15. OMG – I didn’t realize you and Tracey were sisters! I follow her blog Beneath my heart also. I so see the resemblance. Love both!
