#108 - 8 Years Without Her

Today is the 8th anniversary of the day my Mama passed. It is very hard to believe that it has been that long. I just wanted to share some pictures. One day I'll write about the morning that she passed - it was on a Good Friday.

Here she is with her sisters. She is the one on the bottom left.

She was very tall with long skinny legs!

The family before I arrived.

One with me :)

I think this was around 1990.

A few years later.

Mama loved the perfume Red Door. Every now and then if I'm out at a store and a lady walks by with it on I almost have to stop before I can keep walking.

I kept Mama's last bottle. Every year on this day I usually get it out.

Her last Christmas with us we all went together and got her a grandmother's ring. It has birthstones for all of the grandkids and there have been several grandkids and great-grandkids that need to be added!

That band beside her g-mother's ring was my original wedding band. But after we bought it I decided I just wanted a simple band. So Mama bought it from me and kept it for years and a few days before she passed away she gave it back to me. These are two special things that I was able to keep.

This was the girls' favorite place to be!

Can you tell?!

This is Mama and two of her sisters. It was taken at Holly's first birthday party.

Mama was able to give Holly her first haircut! This was a special day. She was a precious woman and a very good Mama and I miss her every single day.
Psalm 23
"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever."

What a sweet tribute to your mama! My daddy died almost 15 years ago and I miss him everyday too. It's so hard to lose a parent. It's a good thing we know where they are!!!

I got tickled at some of the photos. Hairstyles always give away the era. Ha!

My sister ONLY wears Red Door and has for years.

She would be proud of the momma you are today, Jen.
