One year ago today my Mama entered her heavenly home and there is an emptiness that just can't be filled in my heart. I'm not the first person to experience this loss, nor will I be the last, but I miss you, Mom. I miss your advice, your laughter, your excitement over Christmas, your love of shopping, your prayers, your banana puddin' and how you were always in my corner cheering me on.
You've left a legacy of love and faith that will surround my life until I get to see you again "at the gate" of heaven. I pray I'm as good a wife, Mom and Gramma that you were and that I leave a tiny bit of the fragrance of eternal joy you left behind.
My blessing of thanks is being raised by an amazing Mama!
