Happy Birthday Mom!!

Today, my Mom would have been 75 years old. This is her second birthday celebration in heaven. I really miss her and especially so these past few weeks, when I would have loved to talk to her and had her pray with me about things going on in our life. She was a great Mom and she left behind a legacy for us. I just pray that all of her family will come to know and love the Savior that she loved and served so faithfully. That was her deepest desire and wish. She wanted to see each one of us seeking God and serving Him faithfully and being a light in this dark world. Thanks for letting me share my Mom with you today.

Today was turkey butchering day. They are all now chilling in ice waiting for people to pick them up. One less chore on the farm for the winter.

May you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Don't forget to take time to thank the Lord for the many blessings in your life.

He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.

Marci,

With your posts encouraging us to call our Mothers and to not waste the days we have with them, you have helped me greatly. A year ago my Mom went through a really hard six months where we barely spoke to each other. Thankfully we have worked through it and have forgiven each other. We are really close and I'm starting to see that this spat might have even drawn us closer. Thank you for the reminders you give us. I'll be praying for you as I know this must be a hard time for you.

((hugs)),
Karen

Happy Thanksgiving!
