I am wearing green today in honor of my Mom who was a first grade school teacher for 44 years in Detroit. She would wear something green and take green donuts into her classroom to help the children celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Green was one of my Mom's favorite colors and my entire name is Irish so it goes without saying I will wear my green work shirt today.
I had blogged earlier this morning when I came in from work. Unfortunately due to system updates, it did not take. I was doing some possibility thinking. I was thinking about the day I will see Mom again in Heaven, that we can have Heaven right here on earth, living righteously and standing tall. I am missing my Mom a little more than usual, but then again, what is usual? I just know that I have to keep standing firmly on solid ground, look to the good Lord for assistance and guidance and live my life in the way Moma would want me to. I know that I will have some good days and some not so good, but to take them all as a learning experience and still try to lead my life where my steps are ordered.
I am posting this picture of me again at the tender age of twenty-two months. The reason I like this picture of me so much is that the photographer was my Mom and I know in my heart of hearts she loved me so very much and was saying "smile, Kelly smile, show me your teeth!
" I know she is in Heaven now telling me she is okay and to smile, Everything may seem chaotic now, but she wants me to smile. She is whole and healthy and I will see her again!
Thank you to all of my Spark family that posted precious words of support and encouragement on my blog yesterday. It bought tears to my eyes and gave me a spot of hope that this too shall pass in time. Thank you, thank you, thank you
