A Beautiful Day With My Beautiful Mother!

a beautiful day

Today was a great day!  My mother had to drive to Houston to pick up my niece for Christmas shopping tomorrow.  She called me and told me about it and told me that she wanted to shop at Sam Moon (a fantastic bling store with great prices!!).  That was all it took.  I was in.  It is about two hours there and, naturally, two hours home.

We shopped great deals, got gifts, stocking stuffers and I swore to Mother God had to have a  Sam Moon in heaven and we were definitely getting a taste of it!!  Most of my heaven though is the fact I had my mother all day, all to myself!   We talked, laughed, and talked about the great things God is doing in our churches.  But the best part was, I had Momma all to myself!

This is the same one who almost died 3 months ago, the same one who was in total heart failure, the same one the doctor said it would be a miracle if she lived!  Yes, that one!!  We walked every inch of that store and it is thousands of square feet!  We looked at every earring, every bracelet, every ring, every necklace that place had.  My mother never missed a step!!  She actually drove, too!  Did I mention we did all this after she drove us to her beauty shop and she got her hair done?

We went and got my niece and had a wonderful Texas barbecue dinner and headed home.  We never stopped talking going or coming home!  This was one of the best days of my life!!  God gave me something no amount of money can afford…time with one of the people I love more than anything or anyone in the world.  Today, God gave me a beautiful day with my beautiful mom!

Goodnight, precious reader!  I hope you had a beautiful day, too!

    So happy for you. I love your precious mother.

  4. What a wonderfully blessed day you had! It is truly a treasure when we feel like we are going to lose someone and then God miraculously steps in and gives us a little more time with them. I am sure it took a long time to look at all of the jewelry in Sam Moon! I love that store and can spend lots of time there checking out all the bling. Praise God for your amazing day!

    • Thank you for your sweet comment, Shelly! You are so right, that is exactly how it feels…and now that I think about it, I think we were there at least 2 hours! Needless to say, I am pretty pooped tonight, but it was worth it!! :)

God bless you! I would love to hear your thoughts!
