Today I'd like to pay tribute to a very special woman, my Mother. Tomorrow is Mother's Day and for the first time in my life I won't be with her. She'll be celebrating her new life with Jesus.
My mom was a beautiful woman, inside and out. She never met a stranger and loved talking to everyone and finding out their life story. She raised ten children and lost two a couple of years ago. She survived a double mastectomy. She lost my dad when she was 55 and had to get a job for insurance reasons with my two younger sisters still at home. We are strong because of her. Her biggest pride was her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
Last Wednesday we celebrated our last breakfast with her at St. Mary's Catholic Church and hopefully showed her what she meant to all of us and how much we loved her and will always carry her in our hearts. The picture below was taken for our Mardi Gras parade this year. My youngest son placed Georgia's crown on her head and she wore it all day. She was our "Queen" and will be missed.
I haven't been able to participate in Pink Saturday since Mom got sick and missed all y'all pinks. Thank you Beverly for giving me the chance to share this for Pink Saturday. I won't be in town today but will visit the other pink blogs Monday when I get back to town. Have a wonderful Pink Week!
