Today is a special day.
It started as just another day.
I woke up, got my coffee, crawled back into bed to check my e-mails and see what social media had to offer....
and then I saw it.
Happy Birthday Mom.
Written on my brother's FB wall.
My mom would have been 77 today.
The pang hit me.
A beautiful soul taken away way to soon.
Those of you who have read my blog for a while probably followed the course of her illness.
Y'all, it was horrible.
I look back, and ya know I think we all do this, but we look back on really trying times and wonder how in the world did we do it!
God gave us so much strength during that time.
and I always wonder. Would I have that strength again if I need it?
It's kind of an out of body experience thing.
I do know this.
I will think long and hard before having any surgeries.
Unless they are absolutely necessary.
So many of us are in situations where we are taking care of our parents, sometimes our children, and even our grandchildren.
Either financially or medically.
It's tough out there but it's such a rewarding adventure.
you WILL look back on this time and wonder how you did it.
Something just takes over in your body. It's weird.
I want to encourage you today to tell your mom how much you love her.
Moms are such a special breed.
Happy Birthday Mom!
