I will be spending my Mother's Day doing something very special. My newest granddaughter, Hollis Barrett Stamps, is being dedicated to the Lord at her church and I will be there representing her Papa and I as we rejoice in how the Lord has blessed us all with this precious little new life!
But I didn't want Mother's Day to go by without saying something about my Mother. She passed away several years ago but I still miss her everyday. There is just something profound about losing your Mother....no matter how old you are......you feel that loss always.
She adored her grandchildren. She told me many times how she couldn't tell the difference between her own children and her grandchildren. She sacrificed many times for their welfare. I only hope I can be as selfless as a grandmother to my two sweet girls as my Mother was to my two children.
My thoughts lately have been how much my Mother would love Harper and Hollis if she were here!
I have such good memories of my Mother and I just thank God He put me in the wonderful home my parents provided for my sister and me. We were blessed!
I hope each of you have a wonderful Mother's Day week-end. I always think of those who have lost their Mothers, or who have lost a child or can not have children. My heart just hurts for you but I know God has a plan for each of our lives, we just have to trust Him and His timing in all things.
