A blessed Mother's Day to all my female blog friends.
May your day be filled with all good things.
And now for today's Mother's Day post:
A mother's love goes on forever.
Even after she's gone from this earth, her presence and influence continue.
My mother, Barbara. had a kind and gentle heart.
She was also very humble.
All of the photos in this post are of my Mother. How I loved her!
She was generous to a fault.
She'd never dream of buying something just for herself.
Others, especially her five daughters, always came first.
My mother has been gone for 11 years but she has come into my mind a million times or more since then.
Her impact and influence on my life have been profound.
I think of her when I see gardenias or rhubarb pie, cemeteries, a sparkling clean house, books, music, and Snicker bars. She loved all those things.
Most of all, she had deep, abiding faith in Almighty God and the blessed Mother.
No doubt Mumsie is still praying the rosary in heaven.
Today, Mother's Day, I will think of her even more than usual and all the sacrifices she made and love she gave during the course of a lifetime.
(Thanks for everything, Mumsie. I sure miss you.)
WHAT IS ONE LESSON YOU LEARNED FROM YOUR MOTHER?
