A Remarkable Woman

Today is the day that I dread all year round. It's the anniversary of my mom's passing. Today makes ten long years since she has been gone. On this day ten years ago, I not only lost my mom but also a best friend.

My mom was truly A Remarkable Woman. She was such a godly woman. I considered her to be a Proverbs 31 Woman. She  had the strongest faith of anyone that I know. She faced a tremendous amount of trials and tribulations with open heart surgery and cancer, yet she still kept the faith.


My Mom taught me all about Jesus at an early age. When I was only one week old, she had me in church. Even as I got older and tried to come up with excuses as to why I didn't want to go to church, she still made me go. I'm so thankful that she did. She was so dedicated to God and going to church. No matter how sick she was, she hardly ever missed church.

My Mom instilled in me so many morals and values that I still hold onto. She taught me to love and be kind to everyone. She also taught me to not pass judgement for that is only God's place to do that. She taught me to always lend a helping hand and to help those who are in need when I can.



She had such a beautiful soul. She was a friend to everyone. Like I said, she was my best friend. She passed on her love of drinking coffee, baking and reading down to me. She especially loved to read the Word of God. She was everything and more that a mom should be.


So today I will have a cup of coffee and try to think of only the good times that we shared. I will remember all of our wonderful memories. I will try not to dwell on how Ovarian Cancer took her away from my dad, my brother and I. For I know that she is in a much better place than we are. She is healthy and is sick no more. She is rejoicing with the angels and I know I will see her again. I just only wish she could have seen her grandson. She would have loved Raylan. However, she lives on through Raylan. I see so much of her in him.  I was truly blessed to have my mom and now I truly believe that God and my mom blessed me with Raylan. I was blessed to have a remarkable woman for a mother. She was a Godly woman that I can only hope to be like one day.



In memory and In honor of my mom, I try to raise awareness for Ovarian Cancer. It is such a gruesome disease that no one should ever have to endure. Please help me spread awareness too. Let's make Cancer a thing of the past. Cancer needs to be no more. If you would like to help raise awareness please click here. I promise you won't regret it! I even raise awareness on my Christmas tree!



Thanks for taking the time to read about my mom. If you would like to learn more about her and the battle that she fought, you can do so here


Before you leave I want to share with you my mom's favorite Bible Verse. We even put it on her headstone. She quoted this verse more than any other verse. 

We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.  2 Corinthians 5:8



This verse is a good reminder to not be sad, but to rejoice for she is with the Lord!

Thanks for stopping by! God Bless You!
