  1. Beautiful. Thanks, Jeanne.

  2. Jeanne,
    You know this one struck a chord deep within. Did you lose your mom when you were young? Even though I just lost my mom, I often feel like a little girl lost without her. I rejoice SO MUCH that she is with Jesus, but I will miss her every day until we are together again.
    Blessings and love to you this Mother’s Day, dear friend.

    • Natalie,
      You have my deep sympathy for the loss of your mother. Praise the Lord she is with our Lord and awaits you with joy and gladness in her heart!

      My mom passed when I was almost 60, but I sense her presence at times, still talk to her and look forward to seeing her again. Thank you, Lord, for saving her soul!

      May you give thanks to God this Mother’s day for the gift of your mother, a treasure indeed throughout all eternity. My love and prayers be with you tomorrow as you embrace your loss with true peace that only comes from God. He alone is our solace and joy, my friend. Shalom 🙂

  3. Touching and sad.

  4. I miss saying all those things she alone could know especially her name “Mama.”

    • I hear you, Deb! I miss calling her anytime, just to hear her voice, sending cards for any reason, surprising her with a special gift. One day we will be together again! Amen
