Yesterday, June 29th would have been my Mother's birthday.
If she was still alive she would be 88 years old. Her death came about from a car accident many, many years ago. Mother was on her way to work at the hospital where she was a nurse. The morning was very foggy and she turned in front of a car. This was before seat belts or air bags so when her car was hit she bounced all around in the car. She only suffered one tiny cut on the outer part of her body...but inside her body was a different story as all internal organs were ruptured. She lived 23 hours after the accident.
This all happened a few days after Christmas. When we went back to Mother and Daddy's house afterwards the house was as we had left it on Christmas day....except my dear wonderful Mother was with God.
There are so many times since this happened I wish she was still here so I could share the good times (and have her talk to me during the bad times).
My Mother was truly a Godly woman. She set an example for both my sister and me to live our lives as the Bible instructs. Oh, there has been times we have strayed - but that certainly was not our Mother's fault.
"Mama, Happy Birthday!"
