In my previous blog, I wrote a tribute to my Mama. But since many of you might not have had the priviledge, I mean opportunity, to read that one, here I go again.
My Mama is so beautiful!!
Don’t forget elegant! Of course not! She dresses so carefully coordinated, and elegantly, no one would ever guess how little she actually spends on her wardrobe! She color matches everything, from her earrings, necklaces, clothes, all the way down to her shoes. Somehow, I missed that fashion gene!
I love buying her jewelry! It’s so much fun! There’s always something new, I know she’ll like. For Valentine’s day, I bought her these animal print earrings, and wouldn’t you know it, she had on animal print the day I gave them to her! And she had forgotten to put on earrings that day, and was plumb naked! 😉
Yeah, you already wrote about that on this blog!
Here we are:
In the kitchen, where she loves to be, feeding her family! Not only food, but food made with love!
This is her only living sister, out of 5, Aunt Pat, who is a complete sweetheart!
Mama loves giraffes!! SO easy to buy her presents!! I think we’ve bought her every kind of giraffe item in the world! Probably so! I think the weirdest was the towel bowl brush set! Sorry, not sorry, no pic!
She loves her children, grands, and great grands! fiercely!! And we all ❤ her just as much!
Regretfully, I don’t have a pic of the whole family together. 😦 That would be so cool! Maybe photoshop??
She also received her BA in English at 60 yrs old!! That was the accomplishment of a life time!
And a foreign missionary, that was a vision that God gave her at 12 years old, and due to her family’s poverty, she thought it was an impossible dream! Also her education was impossible, in her mind. But faith in God, hard work, and perseverance can work miracles! She is living proof!
Oh, you almost forgot! She taught English in China for a semester! (There she learned that I was not just a whiner about low sinks, they hurt your back!! Even she had to bend over quite a bit there! Thank you China, for validating my lifelong pain! lol )
One final thing, on my list: she is a published author! In her college paper, and an anthology from her senior year there. She writes tremendously well!
Well, I think that’s enough bragging for today. We don’t want her to get the big head!
I love you Mama!!
