This morning, I missed my Mama so bad. Haven't had a day like this for quite some time. One of those days where, BAM!!!, it hits you that someone you love isn't around anymore and won't be ever again. I was having a pretty good pity party and it occurred to me, that what I was really missing was Mama's physical presence.
As I went about my day. As I swept the floors. As I did a bit of sewing. As I drank coffee and had my breakfast. As I cooked our dinner and had to stand on tippy-toes to reach the bowl on the very top shelf. As I watched Dr. Phil and the six o'clock news. As I read my Bible. And when I brushed my wild, curly, hair. Fed the dogs and retrieved the mail, I noticed something. All of these things reminded me of Mama. Busy hands, curious mind, short legs, crazy hair and all. Everything I am, everything I do, everything I will ever be, is a direct reflection of my beautiful Mama. I am who I am because of God and Mama.
I do miss her so but God gently reminded me that she is never far. I simply need to look within.
