Looking at my mom, you wouldn’t think she is an octogenarian. She moves so swiftly & quickly, and she’s still sharp as a nail too. Nothing can get past her, I swear. She still does the groceries & runs her businesses like she was half her age. And she meets her problems head on like a bull, never backing down, always keeping her faith that God will see her through. Amazing, this woman, I tell you. The strongest, bravest, and most courageous lady I’ve ever known. <3
So for her to reach 82 in that blessed state is definitely a cause for celebration! m/
It’s very rare for our little family to be complete. Logistics & other stuff, I won’t bore you with details. ;) So yesterday, the mood was really light & festive as we gathered to celebrate the life of the VIP (very important parent) that is mom. I’m glad that she had at least one day of unadulterated happiness with her grandkids and all her troubles were temporarily put on hold.
Lord, thank you for blessing us with such a generous, loving & hardworking mom. Please continue to grant her good health & long life, peace & joy in her golden years. She has already been through so much Lord -You, most of all, know that. Please allow her to enjoy her remaining years stress-free & worry-free. Grant her Lord the desire of her heart. Hear her cries and answer her prayers. Please always let her feel your presence & comfort her in these trying times. My wish for her is that she gets to travel & see the beauty of the world while she still can. That she gets to do all the things that will give her pleasure & unparalleled joy. Hear this, oh Lord. I claim victory, in Jesus mighty name I pray. Amen.
Happy 82nd birthday, Mommy dearest. I love you! <3
