Mama's grave

I went and fixed Mama's grave for the Christmas holiday. I really am not nuts , this just happens to be the way I handle my grief. I do miss my mother so much, I know she's better off,and she's not in pain anymore, but that doesn't stop me from missing her. Her birthday is Tuesday. She would have been 79. That balloon says HAPPY BIRTHDAY...

That's for me too. She could care less about her birthday. I'm sure she's singing with the choir, taking in the sights, worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ, catching up and loving my Granny to pieces ! I am so thankful that my Mama was a child of the King! I love you Mama...I hope your enjoying your 1st birthday in Heaven. I miss you!!

Here's a picture of Whitney, Emilee and Allie by Mama's grave. Allie kept asking "Granny, When are we gonna see Mama Jack" I told her, this is where they put her when she died, and now she's in heaven with Jesus. She started crying, wanting to see Mama Jack. Missy said she just kept asking about Mama, days after we visited the grave. She may have been too young to go there.
I will be flying, somewhere between here and Guadalajara, Mexico, on Mama's birthday. I've misplaced my little external devise that has all my pictures on it. Notice I didn't say I lost it...I'm still hoping it turns up somewhere, someday! When I get back home after the 16th I will do a tribute to her for her birthday.
This is Mama in 1949, or somewhere around then. I know it was after 1948 because she has her wedding ring on and she and daddy married in 1948.

We are going to Mexico for Yesenia's graduation. We have been paying for her schooling for about 3 or 4 years, so were gonna go watch her recieve her diploma. I am so pleased with her accomplishment.

This is Yesenia and I in July of this year, when she was here visiting ( legally I might add)













Rudy called my attention to the clouds the other day. Is this not beautiful. Its just a glimpse of God's handiwork. It was a very still quiet day. So pretty!
Here's a larger image.
Ya'll pray for Rudy and I and for our house full of kids while we're gone. We have Tim & Bonnie staying here with Noah, Ricky and Jesse, and Whitney is staying with Aunt Mary and Uncle John.
I do not like to be away from home and I certainly don't want to go to a 3rd world country, but here I come. To top it all off I have "my form" of shingles. The doctor tells me its stress poppin out! Its really painful and causes me to be really antsy, or to put it in english, it causes me anxiety !
Just please remember me in your prayer.
I'll blog when I get back and if I don't get back, I'll see you at the feet of Jesus!

Have a wonderful trip. Remember do not drink the water!!! Bottled water only if the seal has not been broken. Learned that on my trip. What a blessed girl Yesenia is to have you in her life.
Beautiful tribute to your mother. Yes, it is all for us. She is with our father and happy. I am not one to go to the cemetery. My father has been gone for 20 years and two of my sisters are gone. One for 32 years and one for eight years. I cannot deal with the cemetery because I know they are not there. I am not too sure I will feel the same way when it is my mother though. There is just something about having your mother here, no matter what your age.
Prayers for a safe and fun trip.
