THOUGHTS FOR SUNDAY ~~ MY MOM
My sweet mother has been in her new home in heaven since November 1991. Monday, February 17th would be her birthday and I wanted to celebrate her life as I think that I'm nearing her age in this picture. It was her 75th birthday and we had a marvelous party for her. A year later she was diagnosed with cancer and was gone at 79.
I love this picture of her as the little boy on her lap is the father of our great grandsons Issac and Matthew. The little girl by her side is my sister's granddaughter and she's also the mother of two.
Where does the time go. To think these two babies are now parents. It reminds me how fast life moves so I need to live every day like it's my last and count my blessing and show love every day!
We had an elderly man in our congregation when we lived up North, and every Sunday when we shook hands and shared a hug, my husband would say "Wayne, how you doing today?" He always gave the same answer ~ "Every day's a bonus." I love that ~ and that's so true. We don't know what the future holds, but we know WHO holds the future ~ That makes every day a bonus!
