Mama’s helpers


Good morning, on this beautiful sunny Friday!

I have shared some thoughts and pictures about my Mom this week via various social media, as I always think about her even more during this week.  I didn’t want to be remiss in mentioning my “other mothers”.  Mom would want me to as well.

I’ll begin with my precious mother in law, who has supported me through thick and thin, defended me like I was her own and loved me with that “mama love” for over 20 years now.  She has been a blessing to me in more ways than I could count.  She loves her family fiercely and unconditionally.

I’m also grateful and blessed to have my aunts who are there for me whenever I need them and have taught me so much about life and love.  Their hugs, advice and enduring love have been available to me for as long as I can remember and I cherish them.

My former Pastor’s wife showered me with love and advised me with wisdom on many matters of the heart.  She will always be precious to me.

There have been others through the years; the friend’s mom, church family members, even a neighbor who just knew when I needed that “mama love”.  You know what I’m talking about; that hug, that little nugget of truth spoken into my life, the promise of prayers.  God has blessed me with many of these relationships.  He cares for His children and knows I have needed that in the years since Mom passed.

Thank you to God for sending them and thank you to all of these ladies.  Without you, I wouldn’t be the woman I am today.

I love you dearly.


  1. How blessed I am to have you and claim you for my daughter. I love you so much!! Aunt Terrie
