MoM and Me - the battle is over

Uploaded: November 18, 2008


This is the last image of my mother and me together. After meeting all her life goals, "it is finished" her battle with breast cancer is over. She has gone on the be with with her father, my brother and Jesus. She showed all who new her, how to love like you have never been hurt and how to pray because He is alwasy listening and how to die with dignaty. Tonight there will be a party in heaven - To God be the glory.

Your tribute and words touched the very depth of my heart and spirit. First I am so sorry for your lost, second you have posted a very special part of your life for us all to see. A mother's greatest accomplishment is to raise her children to be the kind of person you are. Bringing a child into the world to nurture and raise with a love for God is probably if not the best thing a mother can do. May you take comfort in the knowledge that you had the privilege of a special love and bond with your Mother.

Proverbs 31: 29-31
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
