My Marme....

I love my Mama. I love her to pieces. I love her the same way you love that first cup of coffee you hold to warm your hands on a snowy morning; being warmed all over. I love the hugs she gives, that sweet smell telling me I'm home, or as she would say, "Hi my little one". I love the sweet kisses she gives atop my head, or how she unravels my ponytail and gently shakes the tangles loose, dropping my auburn waves into a braid, resting atop my shoulders.

Today, my Marme had surgery. She is okay now, it was elective (electively-necessary). And I wasn't there. For the first time, I live too far now, and since the surgery came up quickly, I stayed behind to work and take care of my home. But my heart is miles away tonight, resting with my Marme.

If you find the time, would you please say a quick prayer for her. I know she would appreciate it. As would I.

She is absolutely beautiful, Jaclyn. :) I see where your beauty comes from and she is very fortunate to have a daughter who loves her so very much. Thoughts and prayers are with you both.

Your mom looks so young!! I agree with Kelli completely :-) I know I'm a few days late, but I'll say a prayer for your mom.
I know she must consider herself a blessed mom to have a daughter like you :-)
