Happy Momma's Day

Just a tribute to my precious Momma. She lives in a nursing home, not far from my house. She knows me, but can not communicate with me. She just looks at me and smiles sometimes. Those day's bless me when she smiles. It is very hard to not have her so we can talk back and forth. I am sure there are many other daughters out there that experience the same as I do. It is a very hard road to walk. I do hold on to the special times I had as I was growing up in Alaska. Homesteading, being able to raise every kind of little animal, living by a glacier and getting to walk 2 miles to see it every Sat. Riding horses, eating sour dough pancakes with blueberries, I picked from the bushes next to our house. Helping her plant her rock gardens, as we called them and going up in the mountains to get beautiful wild flowers to come back home and plant. Hope that you all out there in blog land enjoy your day, with your momma or if she is gone remember the day's that the Lord gave you with her. I am praying for each and everyone of you today. I don't know your name, but the Lord does and he hears me.

My mom always loved to write letters, as we did not live close to each other. I was not a good writer. I would rather just call and hear her voice. What I would give today to get a letter in the mail from her. What I would write back....

Dear Momma, thank you for loving me like you did and correcting me when I needed it. As I have raised my own children, I see how the good and the bad make you into a better momma. Your laugh was so contagious. You always looked so beautiful to me. Specially when you would dress up to go out to dinner with daddy. I would remind you of when we went to Ladies Bible Camps and learned how to love each other better. I will remember those day's today and thank my Heavenly Father for the gift of you! Even though you can't talk back with me, I will honor you with my care and love for you. You are my gift. Can't wait for heaven, so we can sit by the crystal sea and watch the tide come in. We can talk then. I will wait for that day. It will be a special day indeed. You are so precious to me momma. Love you, Linda


  1. That is such a sweet post, my mom is also getting up there almost 82 and doing ok, still living at home with my dad...but I dread the day that I lose her..thanks for making me think to appreciate every day I have with her..we are in the process of moving closer to them so we can grow old together...God Bless..

  2. Thank you so much for writing me. As you know I am new to this blogging thing and I don't get much feed back. I was so excited to hear from you! I am glad that you were encouraged. I too dread the day I will lose my mom.
    How wonderful that you will be able to be close to your momma. It helps to just sit by them and touch them. My mom loves it when I hold her and kiss her face. I know some where in her little mind she knows I am somebody special. Keep in touch with me, I will be praying for you and your mom. You are a very special daughter.
    God Bless you also. Would love to hear how you found me if you wouldn't mind.

    I love you Linda. Thanks for being my "other momma".
