Mothers Are...

"Mothers are, or should be, the very heart and soul of the family. No more sacred word exists in secular or holy writ than MOTHER."

I suppose I wanted to include this quote in my blog today.... because that is exactly how I feel about MY mother. (The picture above is of me with my mom and my two daughters.) My mom is such an exceptional example to me of 'goodness' in the world.... she puts everyone else first - and is constantly encouraging me in everything I do. She provided me a wonderful home growing up.... full of love and safety. We have SO MUCH FUN together --- she loves to laugh and have a good time. She's not scared to try new things. The more I learn of the world, the more I know how LUCKY I am to have her... and how unique my experience has been with such a wonderful mom.

My sweet mom is having surgery today. And although I try not to be nervous.... I can't help it. I just thought I might 'let the digi-world know' about her.... maybe if you are able to include her in your thoughts & prayers - maybe the 'positive energy' will make a difference. She's been in the hospital for over a week now.... and her condition is not (hopefully) anything life-threatening.... but she's been in pain for too long now.... and this surgery should help.

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while.... there are SO MANY things (other than things about my mom) that I WANT to say.... but they will have to wait for other blogging days.

Thanks for all the support you've given ME.... and thanks for any prayers you might have to offer for my MOM.

{{{HUGS}}} for all of you!

P.S. The cute frame and heart are from Kim B.'s new kit: "Just Because" which she just released!


Update: Since writing the above.... I've talked with my mom, and her surgery is now pushed back till Wednesday. (She's NOT very happy about having to wait evern longer.... but she trusts the doctors.) Her recovery will keep her in the hospital for at least a week or so AFTER her surgery as well.... (if all goes according to plan) so her hospital room is really becoming her 'home away from home.' Ugh.

Aw Beth, Your mom and family are MOST DEFINATELY in my prayers!!!! My mum goes tomorrow for a series tests herself to see if she will need heart surgery or if medicine can correct it, so I know how you are feeling right now.

I have a blog game going on over at my blog and I've put your name in the hat. Please take care and Blessings to you and your family.

Hi *Beffy*

I hope this email finds you 'ok' - I am soooo sorry I have not come round for a bit, so I missed your Mom's accolades and surgery - and to pray for you. PLEASE if you EVER need prayer, don't be shy to come and beat down my blog-door! I love to pray for a need.

How IS Mom?

I envy you your close relationship - envy in a GOOD way. My mom is gone so can never experience it again tho I am so blessed with lovely MIL.

I love the way you scrapped this - your photo is gorgeous and Kim's Kit is wonderful.

I'll be thinking of you!
