Just thinking about Mothers and Daughters today. I was thinking about what a wonderful Mother I had and how blessed I was by her. My Mom passed away 3 1/2 years ago and not a day goes by that I don't think about that awesome lady. I miss her dearly!
I couldn't begin to tell you what and awesome woman she was. First and foremost she loved and served God with all her heart. She loved my Dad beyond measure and she loved her 3 daughters more than life itself. She spent almost 60 years in the ministry, as a pastor's wife, with my Father. She always had a smile, a happy heart and always saw the good in people. She had faith beyond measure.
I spent almost everyday with my Mom the last 4 years of her life. This was such a gift for me. My Mom suffered from dementia, but always knew my Dad and me. She never forgot the scriptures and loved to sing all the old wonderful Christian hymns. She never missed a word!
I miss YOU MOM!! I will see you again someday! I am so thankful for that wonderful promise!
Wishing you all a wonderful day . . . and take time to think about your Mother today. If she is still living . . . give her a call and tell her you love her!

My dad also suffered from dementia. He always knew me by name when I came to visit, though he would not have been able to explain who I was. He, too, retained the words to hymns and sang "In the Sweet Bye and Bye" with me in the last hours of his life.
