Later in the day I saw my mother. Although tired she smiled sweetly for me for this picture.
I miss our long talks at her kitchen table, our shopping trips, our sharing of ideas, our years of close companionship.
A few days ago I hung this note on her closet as a gentle reminder about her clothes and as a daily reminder that she is loved.
As we age we give more thought to the next life. Our faith in eternal life is put to the test. Yesterday at our small church it was Homecoming. We had a special song and word service by The Finchers, a well-known gospel group. The message was like those I heard when I was growing up. Simple yet powerful. For the young and old.
