My Mother's story
I just received this in the mail this afternoon and have decided to share it with the world. It is not written fancy. It is mostly in her words straight from her heart, written with the hope that it would encourage someone else even after she was gone. She did not have an easy life, but she loved God and He was her all in all. I hope you are blessed. I have only read the first page and the tears are streaming down my face. I know some of what she faced. I have been blessed and did not really understand or appreciate the mother she was. She was a very special person who loved deeply and I miss her very much. If I can be half the person she was, I will be happy. I will post the story in segments. You may have to click on the picture to enlarge it so you can read the words.
Fonda, I love the letter from Destiny and the pictures of Destiny and Preston. The letter goes in my treasure box. I love you all!

Thankyou God for bringing this amazing woman into my life! She was my inspiration in ways that even her own kids will never know; She was my rock when the ground beneath me was sinking; She was my stength when the trials of life weighed me down; She was a true christian; She was a woman of God!

Yes, Ronda. It was you that first brought us in and then it was Mom that helped so many out. She was wonderful in all the ways that mattered. She saw such potential in you and you didn't let her down in the end.
PS I'm glad to see you have a blog. Now you just have to start posting! Yay. I can't wait.

Hi Merrily,
Thanks for your commnets. I didn't get the first one. I am appreciating what I had more and more as the years pass. I understand hermore now, than I did when I was a teenager. I was so very blessed. I have been thinking about her alot lately. This little booklet is so precious. People say she remnds them of you when they see her picture.
