Happy Mother’s Day!

Since my daughter, her husband, and their cute, precious 18-month-old daughter live 2 hours away from our home, I often ask my daughter to take short videos of Lucy so I can have my “granddaughter Lucy fix” each day.  During a brief text conversation with my daughter yesterday, she sent some hilarious videos of Lucy!  It makes me smile every time I see her on video, and especially when I see her in person!

After commenting about one of the videos I wrote, “Love you all so much!!!” my daughter wrote:

“We love you so much mama!!!  I’m so thankful for you.  I saw this and it made me think of me and you and then made me think of me and Lucy and I teared up!!”

“I realized when you look at your mother, you are looking at the purest love you will ever know.”

Mitch Albom

I replied, “I’m crying now!!!  Now that you’re a mom too, you truly understand…

Just as I finished typing the above, my daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter Face Timed with me!  Jenna and Lucy will be visiting for several days starting tomorrow, so I get to enjoy a much longer Mother’s Day celebration!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!  May God bless you and your families!

I am truly blessed that my 93 year old mom is still with us!  I do not know how many more years that I will get to spend with her.  Therefore, I treasure each time we speak on the phone and each visit I have with her.

May the Lord Jesus comfort you at this time if your mom is no longer here on this earth.

The promises in the Bible assure us that we will see our loved ones again in eternity, which is a much better place.

I have always found that John 14:1-3 is a very comforting promise from Jesus:

John 14:1-3 (NKJV)

Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.

In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you.  I go to prepare a place for you.

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
