Happy Mother's Day!!!

Happy Mother's Day to all of my family & friends who have gladly given their lives to their children in everything from counting toes to letting go.

And always remember to give thanks to The ONE Who blessed you with those children.

{Mother ~ 2010}

Every Mother's Day I spend with my mother is becoming, well, odd ~ she has dementia and her short-term memory, and some long-term, is becoming increasingly "unavailable." This confuses her, so sometimes even simple conversation makes her angry as she simply "gets lost" in it. But I love my mother and will continue to try to be there for her, as I can. This Scripture has become more & more precious to me as Mother's condition worsens . . .

"Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the
child she has borne?
Though she may forget,
I will not forget you!
See, I have engraved you
on the
palms of My hands . . ."
~Isaiah 49:15-16

{Christmas 2001}

God has blessed me beyond measure in my children. Granted, I've gained a few gray hairs because of them ~ lol ~ but they (and my husband) are the joys of my life. And what joy will fill my heart when I go Home ~ I'm hoping that our Jessica & the 2 other little ones we lost will meet me at Heaven's gate and walk me into the Presence of God.

Oh, the joys of a mother's heart!

Blessings from Ohio . . . Kim<><

  1. That was a beautiful tribute to your mother and mothers everywhere. We just had to let our mother in law go live with her other son & family because her dementia is increasingly getting too difficult for us to handle and work everyday...it was a very painful "good-bye" as she was so angry with us. I hope someday we will be able to reunite in a joyous embrace with love and understanding again. Maybe not until we reach heaven, but I know God understands. It made Mother's Day sad, along with the memory that my own mother had passed away exactly 5 years ago...but God is good and He gave me precious memories to cherish. God bless you, Kim...you are a sweet fragrance to God.
