Mom was 71 years old when she decided it was time to learn to sky dive. So, she did. Krista went with her. Mom had a zest for life which I've only seen matched in my Grams. Today is Mom's 4th Heavenly Birthday. I remind myself to try new things.
I woke at 3:30 a.m. and sat with my loneliness and grief. I miss her phone calls. I miss her stories. I miss the way she kept me connected to the people from my childhood.
I found myself doing little things to honor her today...things that reminded me of her and keep her memory alive. At about 6 a.m I had a sweet cup of tea...
Connecting with family is probably the best way to honor Mom's memory. We share her stories and love for Jesus with her great grandkids who never got to know her.
Four years without Mom, in some ways seems so long, and in other ways it's short. I'm thankful for the memories.
We'll join you "soon," Mom.
