Gonna Get Some Mommy Love

I am so excited! My Mom is coming from Florida for a visit. My husband will drive to MoBay to get her from the airport. They share exclusive membership in their own "mutual admiration society". I am delighted that they love each other.

I have been in need of some Mommy Love recently. We've talked and e-mailed, but now we can hug and kiss and hold hands! My husband has been a blessing thru my recent trials, but nothing soothes like Mommy Love! Yes, I am a GrandMother, but I still need to get my Mommy Love, too!

At 79 years young (80 in May) my Mom is one of the coolest women I know. She survived an abusive marriage with her ability to love and forgive still intact. She got her first computer when she was in her 60's and now corresponds with folks from around the world. She also travels around the world!

If I ever decide to grow up, I want to be like my Mom.

This is a shot of what is on my bead board for now. A partially done N'Debele bracelt and one earring. I probably won't bead or blog much while Mom is here. I want to focus on being with her.

Sistren Di,

I give daily thanks that my Mom is still alive. I depend on her so much for love and inspiration. She lives her faith and that inspires me to be better.

I am glad to say that my mom only lives ten kilometres away from me. So I can see her every day, if I like or if I need her. That's a blessing! And she is....just great. What else can I say.
Lady Roots, good to see, that you are beadig again. And say hello to your mom from me. Enjoy your time with her!

LR-I'm so happy you are blessed with a wonderful Mommy that can come and visit with you and give you all the love that you need. I miss my Mommy so much-you're so lucky to have yours.

The beads are beautful-love the colors and the dangle of the earrings.
Enjoy your Mom visit!

Love always,
Leslie

Sistren Dagmar,
It must be great to be so close to your Mom! Don't ever take that for granted. I'll pass on your greeting to Mom when she arrives on Tuesday.

Idren Morpheus,
That is so true of my Mom! Her heart is filled with love and forgiveness. Thanks for stopping by again. And as soon as I can get up on my own two feet, I WILL WALK GOOD!

Sistren Leslie,
I can't imagine this world without my Mom in it. The phrase "motherless child" frightens me, even at my age. I want to take full advantage of every opportunity I have to be with her. She uplifts me!

Bless Up,
Lady Roots

Your piece on Mommy Love warmed my heart. Thanks to you, my mum got a call from me. I just wanted to hear her voice.

LADY ROOTS you were in my thoughts tonight. I am very happy that your Mom is coming to visit. It was so hard to leave my Mom and come back home after the holidays. She is always in my heart. Sending prayers for a speedy recovery.

LADY ROOTS said...

Sistren August,
I am glad to have touched your heart in a way that encouraged you to call your Mum. Our life energies are multiplied when positive benefits come from our actions, thoughts or prayers. Thanks for letting me know this good thing happened!

Sistren Pearl,
Life on the Recovery Road is great! Today I feel boonoonoonoos(wonderfully and exceptionally beautiful) I got a fantastic night’s sleep (first in weeks), I finished two bracelets, the cast comes off next week and MOM ARRIVES ON TUESDAY! My life is great and getting better by the day. I give I-tinual thanks.

Idren Leon,
Welcome. Come, sit, mek wi reason together!

I am glad you like the beadwork. Must pop over and say thanks to Idren Stunner for being the path to your arrival here. Please come back again soon.

Sistren NEB,
When you share my joy at Mom’s arrival, it just magnifies the delight for me. Your recovery prayers are welcomed and needed. Cherish your Mom and make sure she knows it.

How wonderful that your Mom is coming to see you.! (Also, that you still have her with you) I mis my Mom (and Dad) a lot even though they have been gone for over 20 years. Their teachings and examples live on in me and now I see in my children and grandchildren. It warms my heart when I hear my children (who knew them) comment on their grandparents. That applies to my parents and my husband's parents. We were both blessed.
Thoroughly enjoy your Moms visit!
