Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Do you ever...

Get too big to sit in your Mama's lap? I think not!



-
This is my daughter and granddaughter after a day of swimming and boating and "tubing". I'm at my sister's this weekend cleaning out the last of Mothers things in the apartment where my parents lived until thy died ten years ago. Ten years and I'd still like to climb up in Mama's lap.

The last room to clean is her sewing room. Lots of wonderful memories in there. She taught me to quilt and whenever I'm sewing I think of her.

Ooh, I've really been missing my mom the past few days, Marlene. My girl is getting so big, and no one else in my family has girls. Right there with you!

Carol said...

Never too big! Miss my mom every day

I'm sure she still has you wrapped in her arms. It is wonderful to still have her sewing skills. It will be a tough task going through her sewing room.

How strange that I was just sitting here thinking of my mom. Why don't you go ask your daughter to sit on your lap and get some cuddles? Think of all the good memories while you're cleaning out the sewing room.

Your sweet post triggered a lot of memories for everyone today.

I cuddled with my Mom clear up till she died. Some days I would give anything to curl up with her and have a chat. I am only sad that my own children aren't as cuddly as me.

Belinda said...

My Mom wasn't really the cuddly type, but I would be happy to cuddle my 30+ year old daughter even now.

Oh there is nothing better that a cuddle, whether if I am giving or receiving. I think any of us who have lostt their Mother would love a cuddle from her now. Great post!

Julie Fukuda said...

I can't ever remember sitting on any lap, even when I was a kid but I've got plenty of cuddling in since I became a mother and grandmother.

Ah such a lovely picture! My mother is still with us but lives far away, so I only get to see her maybe twice a year. Her hugs are the best in the world!!!

Vickie said...

She would be so happy to know you are the one doing it and how each little item will bring up wonderful memories of yalls good times together.

My husband's Mother is dying, she is 97 and it is time but it has brought up a lot of feeling of missing my own Mother, I am all most her age when she died and I still miss talking other. Blessings Sandra
