pray for my mama...



Well girls, I am heading out of town this afternoon. Tomorrow is a big day...for my mom...and for me. She is going in for surgery very early tomorrow morning. It is a scary kind of surgery, so I cannot say enough prayers and cross enough fingers and toes to help ensure she makes it through ok.

I love this woman. More than she will ever know. I am her last child...number 8 in the line-up, and born 9 years after all my brothers and sisters. I think that has always given us a special relationship. I am 35 years old, and when she introduces me to someone she still calls me her "baby".

Secretly, I love that.


And I love this photo of her...and this is how I want to think of her today. Young, in love and so much ahead of her in this life.

Please, say a little prayer for her.

I need her to be ok.

  3. Found your blog a few weeks ago & have loved being inspired by your creativity & fun diy projects. Just prayed for you & your Mom... may you be comforted by the Lord and find strength in Him. (My husband had surgery to remove cancer this year... it is incredible how God moves in us through trials like these.) A quote I came across that has touched us (and I hope might be an encouragement to you too??) is: "The supreme need in every hour of difficulty and distress, is for a fresh vision of God. Seeing Him, all else takes on a proper perspective & proportion." - Campbell Morgan

  34. Hi Mary,
    Ofcourse I will pray for your mom, I hope you will sleep good tonight so you can be in good shape to be with her. I can relate your fears, my daddy just had a stroke again, it's hard when a parent is sick, so hang in there.
    Also, we haven't really met yet, but I love what you do in your blog!
    All the best,
