My Mom and Me

I was cleaning through the basement and found this great picture of my Mom and Me. As most of you know my Mom, Patti, died 9 years ago this passed Christmas Morning. She was my everything and for some reason I am having a hard time with her being gone lately. I'm reading a book called Motherless Daughters, which is helping me work through this latest wave of grief. I've been praying a lot and reading my Bible, which is also helping. I think I figured out that my son losing his first 2 teeth probably sparked it this time. Please enjoy this picture of my Mom and Me. It has a glare on the picture, but it is a great one. :-)

Awww that's so sweet. You know, seeing that photo of you of as a little girl makes me realize just how much your daughter looks like you!

oh great. now you got me crying. :( we had the coolest mom of them all. :-) i miss her a ton too. it seems like so much happened after she died. your kids. the launch of kidology... but i guess it always seems that way since we are more aware of the blessings of life when we realize who isn't here to enjoy them. but what a heritage she left us!
