My Mom

My Mom
My Mom was a woman of great strength, courage, spirit, fight, sense of humor, compassionate, loyal, loving, faithful, dependable, kind, & sometimes bossy, occassionally she was nosey.
I learned a lot from her, She was a teacher, a cook, a nurse, a waitress, a laundress, a gardener. The greatest Mother.. and so much more.
She loved her children, Her grandchildren, and her great granddaughter. She loved her family immensely. She adored the family pets. (Even if one was a yapping mutt.)
She liked the Buckeyes, buying crafts, and her great shopping passion was new furniture. I used to laugh that she changed couches more than most people change their bed sheets. She loved new furniture.
My Mom.... We miss you Mom.... We love you Mom.....

My mom lost her courageous battle to cancer on Tuesday Sept. 15....She had Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma... which is a rae cancer.
This week has been so busy. A few days ago I was blogging about the new normal.. Nurses, hospital beds, oxygen, sheet changing, laundry... and everything else...
Oh How I wish I had that normal back in my life.. We buried my mom in a beautiful spot at our local town cemetary... No one wants to lose a loved one.... No one!!!
The 6 of us children,Her 9 grandchildren, 1 great grandchild... and sisters, brothers, nephews, nieces, and friends will miss her greatly, but we will meet again...
Thank you for giving us such a great mom, Lord.... She is an amazing woman.. Please Rest in Peace Mom........


  1. now you know where you got your strength from!
    being a mom is a full time job and it is one that only can be done from the heart.

  2. I am so sorry....I didn't know.
    This is a very sweet tribute to your Mom~
    You will be in our prayers,

  3. I will have to add to the fact that she was definitely a great person. She was a wonderful MIL!! I never remember her saying a bad thing about anyone (unless she talked about me behind my back lol). She also had a smile on her face, especially win her new furniture was in place and her HUGE (and I mean HUGE) oak cabinet was moved into each and every new apartment and the guys were trying to catch their breaths from carrying it in. I can honestly say that I always felt that she treated my better than just a daughter-in-law. She will definitely be missed for all that she was and all that she had done. If you need anything, do call! I love to get out of the house on occasion or talk to an adult that is not in a hurry to get to work or home. Or if you just need to vent about what is happening. You know we are there!!

  4. Hugs to you sweetie I heard that you lost your mom. I'm deeply sorry hear about your loss. Hugs to you and many prayers that your pain will be replaced by good memories of her smile and time you spent together.
