Word Filled Wednesday
Mom (Sandy), was a beautiful woman, inside and out. She loved getting dressed up and being dressed up. She was always dressed to the nines! And she always look absolutely stunning! She loved her jewels and makeup too! Not in a "Jan Crouch" sorta way but she did love her some jewels!
She was so passionate in her love for the Lord. Always quick to remind that God was and is watching every step of the way! And there were a few times, in my teens, that I definitely needed that reminder! Thank God for Mom!
Mom was funny! Down right hilarious! She had to be on her toes with humor if she was going to stay married to my Dad. Who by far is one of the funniest people I know! Mom used to call me at night and we would watch one of our favorite sitcoms over the phone. I sooo miss that! She was on a camping trip with friends, a very very long time ago, and a lightening bug flew into the trash can and she thought that it might cause a fire...my Mom...the blonde (only it wasn't her natural color)...I think it just soaked in. No offense to the blondes out there! : )
Mom had the most beautiful handwriting. People even had her address envelopes for them for invitations. To this day, it is still hard to see it. I have recipes that are written by her, I have cards and pictures that have her handwriting on them. But I cherish all of them.
Mom had an amazingly beautiful voice. She could sing! Oh my word, could she sing. My parents were in a gospel group, back in the day, (don't laugh) they were called The Country Gospel Singers. Original huh? My sister and I even sang a tune with them a time or two when we were little. And if I could sing, I would still be up there! My Mom sang for several churches with another couple for years. Beautiful music!
Mom could play the piano and the organ by ear. To me, this is an amazing talent! She could listen to any song and sit down and pick out the notes and play it! We loved to listen to her play. A couple of years ago, I remember a night when we were at my parents house and she played the piano and we (Dad, sister, BIL and me) sang together. I wish we could do that just one more time!
My Mom could cook. Chicken and Noodles was my favorite! And there's a list of others! Now my sister cooks for us! Thanks Shel!
My Mom loved reading, movies, hanging with her Grand kids and loved spending time with family.
My Mom and Dad had the most romantic relationship! Of course, my Dad spoiled her rotten! We used to tease them about that! They were the perfect example of LOVE and had a wonderful marriage.
Mom was a great Mom! I learned so much from her and I am so thankful to God for her. There's so much more that I could share with you but I hope you can see in what I have typed just how beautiful she was and how much I miss her. All of us miss her.
I wouldn't ask God for her back though, she's having the time of her life and I'm so happy for her! Actually, I'm envious! We'll all see each other again someday!
Thank you, my sweet friends, for letting me tell you about her!! By the way...she would sooo love this whole blogging thing!
