This is my second Mother's Day without my Mom. It is still hard, but not as hard as last year. I know that I will always miss her. When we lost her, we lost the main prayer warrior for our family. It has showed that those prayers are missing. The rest of us need to step up to the plate and pray like she did. She walked what she talked. I think of her up there with the Lord. I know she is so much happier. She has met the King of Kings!!!! I was listening to a song about going to heaven and the first thing they wanted to do, was to see Jesus. I could whole-heartedly sing along with that, but then I added my own line.... Then I want to see my Mom. =) This picture was taken in the spring of 1976. I was a senior in high school. I believe this was just after my Grandpa's funeral. My Grandma is in the front, then my Mom and then me.
I also celebrate on this day, that God blessed me with a son and let me be a mother. Here is a picture of my son, Joshua. =) He is going to love me for putting this picture up here. He is my gift from God. I wanted 12, but was only given one and so I got an extra special one.
He knows that I love loose change. I always use bills to buy things and keep the change. I save it up and have bought some really neat stuff with change. He had a half gallon jar almost full of change. He was messing with it last night. I thought he was counting it or rolling it. Here is what I saw when I came out of my room this morning. When he got up, he told me that his whole jar of change was mine for Mother's Day!!
