Greetings and Holykisses,
This week, I shared a memory of my Angel Mother with someone dear to me.
So many thoughts have been crossing my mind from this one priceless memory:- Although I've shared it here before, it seems to keep coming back.
You see- Momma loved Bing cherries.
And from time to time, I'd bring her a bagful for a special treat.
This particular day, I'd done just that. So we rinsed them off and put them in a bowl; carrying them out to her back deck that faces the woods and big pasture.
She was very sick at this point.
The cancer, and treatments had taken their toll on her little body.
Her hair was pretty much gone, but she wore colorful bananas... and the most beautiful smile.
Have you ever spent time with someone where alls you really did was ... just be with them?
Well that's what we did together that day.
We sat side by side out on the porch, dining on the bowl full of cherries between us.
Neither of us felt like we had to say anything. We just simply enjoyed God's beauty, ....and spit cherry pits off the porch.
After a long stillness, I'll never forget her saying:
"ThisGod used my Momma that day to give me so many gifts through one moment in time.
Gifts that keep coming back to me ... reminding me.
