This is the first blog that I have ever written in my life. I just had a birthday on the 12th and for the first time has to celebrate my birthday and Christmas without my mother.

It feels so strange because she was the glue that kept our family together. Everyone seemed to have scattered to the wind. I miss being in the kitchen with her cooking enough food to feed a couple of small cities and the cakes and pies...oh my! I can still see her smiling every time someone took another slice.  

Since my mother died, I survived breast cancer, had a mastectomy, lost my job, and may lose my car....but I am faithful that GOD is with me and will deliver as always.  

Merry Christmas

    • I know we always say God doesn’t give us more than we can handle but it’s my prayer for you that He turns it all in the other direction for you soon.

      I’m so sorry you lost your mom and have gone through what you have this year. My He be with you in this time and always.

    • hug   Trust that she & God are watching over you.  They are not going to let anything happen to you that you can't handle.  Have faith that there is a reason for everything though those reasons may not become apparent for years to come.  And it's ok to let yourself cry.  Hang in there.  Your Fab 40 sisters love you.

    • Bless you, bluerose. I really feel loved today.

      Why did you choose the name “bluerose“?

    • My prayers are with you. I know first hand how hard it is to loose a Mother, mine passed away ten years ago, the weekend before Thanksgiving. My Mother asked a simple thing of me, to always celebrate the holidays, keep her traditions alive and remember her as I did so. It is especially hard because my birthday is Christmas too. But now even though it is fewer people in my celebrations, my rituals help me to keep the Holiday alive, and her present to me and I feel blessed indeed.
