I am doing great :) all the praise goes to my Jesus! The Author and Finisher of my Faith! I've been working and doing all the normal things I do! Oh and I turned the big 1-9 last weekend! Last year in my teens! I could have never made it this far without him! I am so wonderfully blessed :)
So, this coming up Sunday is Mother's Day. It will be my first without my momma. But I know she will be spending it in a wonderful place with her mother. And that makes me feel better knowing that she will be :) I wanted to a memory about my momma and me :)
The year 2008
This year started the long battle with head lice.. Now we are very clean people but lice don't care who you are. Anyways I discovered it one night and from there on we could not get rid of it.. We tried everything from dog shampoo to kerosene.. From awful over the counter lice treatment medicine to mayonnaise...NOTHING seemed to work. We vacuumed our beds and floors, sprayed stuff with lice spray. We spent hours looking through each others heads. My little brother and dad had no problem during this time.. They got short hair.. Me and my momma would tell each other let's just shave our heads and get wigs.. Then we would say then lice would get it in them!!! I literally thought I was gonna go crazy at times.. Cause I hated them with a passion!! After nearly a year momma got in the hospital. She was having trouble (little did we know what we were about to face a bigger battle than lice) When we came home and we decided to treat our heads one more time... And we were gonna trust God to take these things away. We just couldn't do it anymore. We had done all we could do. Let's just say we never dealt with it again. God took them away! But you know what it is so God to do that. Cause after that my momma was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. I am thankful for those little lice bugs.. I spent so much time with my momma that year.. And she would tell me at times, when we would be sitting out on the front porch checking each other's heads that God had a reason for all this. I can see it now and I am thankful :)
Happy Mother's to all the mothers out there.. And everybody treasure your mother like a jewel and let her know how much you love and appreciate her!
Blessings and Love,
