Happy Birthday Mom

Today was my Mom's birthday.  It's been two months since she passed away and I still can't believe it.  It doesn't feel real, yet it is.  I've been angry with God, but lately the anger has turned to sorrow.  I'm glad she isn't suffering anymore.  She was so sick the last year of her life. 

As I look through more recent pictures of her I can see now how sick she was.  I can't bear to put any of these pictures up now.  At the time I couldn't see it and that I feel was God's grace.  I couldn't have cared for her had I fully seen how sick she was.  Tonight we shared cake and remembered how wonderful it was to have her with us. 

I've decided I don't want to miss any opportunities to love on others.  We need to take every opportunity to enjoy our family and friends.  To enjoy life's little simple pleasures while we can.

Dear God, please give my Mom a great big birthday hug from me and tell her that I love her - Amen.
