- A mom’s hug lasts long after she lets go. Author Unknown
- Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever. Author Unknown
While reading many posts from Kathleen’s () Mother’s Day Challenge, I reluctantly decided to link up and share some things from my mom. I didn’t expect it, but this is a hard Mother’s Day for me since it is the first one since Mommy’s passing in August.
My mom grew up in very humble circumstances being one of eleven children. Her mother died at age 44 leaving many little ones that the older kids raised. (Mommy was third oldest). There weren’t settings of china or crystal or other lovely things to pass down and these years were huge in developing Mommy’s character.
As I looked about thinking of Mommy and the things I have received from her, it seemed fitting to gather in a room that is most representative of her. So, I collected items that belonged to her for a Mother’s day brunch served on the bedroom set that belonged to her.
She had a large presence and my heart is missing her.
And… looking with love from the generation before me to the generation after me…
Finally brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of a good report – if there is any virtue and if there is any praise- think on these things. ~Philippians 4:8
