Missing My Mom
Hurricane Gustov is on the way! Doesn't look like he is heading towards South Texas but maybe Louisiana. Hope everyone prays for the people in it's path and especially Louisiana; they sure don't need another big hit. Hurricane Jena and Kennedy are on their way too! I am so excited to have someone else to play with over the Labor Day Weekend. It will be so much fun. Sorry, Cody, Jordan, Brandon, Julia, Jake, Jaden, Jacob, and Kaelynn wish you could come too. That would make for a perfect weekend. Labor Day weekend is always sad for me. On Saturday morning Sept 3rd 1994 my mom left left us for heaven after a battle with ALS-Lou Gehrig's disease. That weekend was the same as the Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon. Jena was able to attend with her friend Katie and was interviewed about mom and how she "used to have a Grammee" who went to be with Jesus. Very sweet but very sad. How I miss that woman! How my mom would have loved watching her granddaughters grow up to be such lovely women. Oh my gosh, she would have spoiled her great-grand kids; probably more than Wes and I do. I sure could use some time for a good long talk with my mom; lots of venting and much needed advise from her. Who am I kidding, I already know what she would say about most things; get along and love each other. I sure do miss her Bunches!Me and Mom when I was 2 mths old; she was only 20 yrs old! Grammee with Julia and Jena at Babyland General(Cabbage Patch Hospital) after adopting 3 newborns. Mom is holding Jordan's because she was too little to ride the airplane to Georgia-some things never change!!!!
