I Miss You, Mama

Mother’s Day has always been hard for me because I am NOT one.  I have taught and worked with children much of my career life as well as during many pieces of my personal life.  I like children…the way they love and learn and just are!  But I am not a mother… for many reasons.  That is just the way it is.  I am 65 and there is no reversing this now.

This year is particularly difficult because I just (in January) lost my own Mama.  I miss her terribly so, but am grateful that the LORD’s numbered days reached that final point and she is with Him now.  But I still miss her and surely will for the rest of my life, I imagine… just because…


This orchid was the last orchid plant I gave her.  And I have managed (through no fault of my own) to keep it alive.  It is actually blooming right now as I type.

I send you my love, Mama.  You and your red hat!!  You were a special lady.


Dearest Heavenly Father, my Abba Father,  I thank You so much for giving me to this precious Mama 65 years ago.  She was the best one for me and I am ever grateful to You for Your gift of her.  Hold me near as I mourn this HUGE loss.  I know You are comforting me and loving me as I learn to live in this world without her.  Thank You, Gracious LORD.   I love You, Abba.  Amen.

Your words are woven in
