Queen For A Day

I love that my Momma is so active and enjoys life the way she does. She is constantly going to one function or the other. Church is a huge thing for her. She is a member Of The Young At Hearts and WMU. She also goes to all the softball games that the church has. They lose a lot of games but she really enjoys it.

It is a blessing that she is enjoying her golden years. I can only hope to be able to do all the things she does. My Momma worked hard all her life and she did the most wonderful job of juggling her work and my Daddy's cancer. When Daddy died it was a real blow to her and I dont think she has ever gotten over it. So now that she finds so much enjoyment in her life with her friends and family makes me very happy. That is all I want for her now that she is retired.

Momma will be 83 this year. I think she is so cute! This picture was taken at one of the many things she participates in. She was crowned Queen of the 50's Ball. She was so proud she had pictures made so me and my brother and sister could have one. She is a Queen in my eyes and it makes me happy that she is a Queen in other peoples eyes. I adore my Momma. She has always been my rock---through all the good times and all the bad.

She's Beautiful.. Even without the picture we know she is beautiful inside and out, because she has a daughter that reflects her sense compassion, love and dreams! You are beautiful! I will hug you one day.. I know that I will.
