Our Angels

My Mama has molded me into the person that I am today.

This is an older photo of my Mama.
It is one of my favorites because it is beautifully hand tinted.
Her name is Mary.
She has changed quite a bit through the years,
but she is still my beautiful Mama and I love her dearly.
My daughter made me into a Mama.

This is my daughter~Holly
She too has molded me into who I am today.
Being a Mama is one of the best experiences I have had in life.
There is nothing that compares to it.
There is a joy in your heart knowing that you have raised a child into an incredible young lady.  I pray that she too will one day come to know that joy.


I made my Mama a photo book one year for
Mother’s Day and had the following printed in the back.
I wanted to share this with you and wish each and every
Mom, Mother, Mama, Ma, or Momma
 a Happy and Blessed Mother's Day!

A Newborn's Conversation with God
A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow,
but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"

God said, "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."

The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have
to do anything but sing and smile to be happy."

God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you.
And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."

Again the small child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand
when people talk to me if I don't know the language?"

God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words
you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will
teach you how to speak."

"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"

God said, "Your angel will place your hands together
and will teach you how to pray."

"Who will protect me?"

God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life."

"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."

God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach
you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you."

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth
could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave
now, please tell me my angel's name."

God said, You will simply call her, "Mom." 
….Where would we be without our Mama’s….What angel do you call Mom?

My word for 2010-Experience
I’ve experienced being a Mama
