Multitude Monday: From a Mother to Daughter

Gifts from a mother to a daughter (51-62)

Because of her,
I am healthy.
My children are healthy.
Because of her,
I am not afraid to take a difficult road.
I am not afraid of anything really.
Because of her,
the ways of this world don't appeal to me. 
She stood in the gap for me,
prayed for me,
encouraged me,
inspired me,
supported me,
knew me,
loved me.

63. time taken from a busy life to send a simple card
64. an empty space on the calendar
65. a childhood dream of becoming a mother come true, many times over
66. a sweet thank you from a teenage girl
67. my rocking chair.......where she rocked me and now I rock her
68. five beds that need clean sheets
70. tears that fall freely
71. a promise that I will see her again and she will get to meet them.

My cup runneth over......

How was your Mother's Day?

Couldn't wait to read it. Beautiful. She looked so happy in these pictures of us when we were little. I have so few memories of her in that time. Thank you for sharing your heart here, I am never brave enough to do this.

This is the best post I've read all day. So, so sweet. I think I read this correctly and that she is gone from this world... so, so sorry. She would love this post.

Beautiful. Mother's Day is always a remembrance day for me too.

Oh and isn't it interesting how times have changed... regarding the picture of you on blankets in the front seat of your mom's car. :)

Thanks for sharing this in pictures. Such a bigger impact than words alone.
