Wordless Wednesday - Mom

I'm back.  

My husband and I recently went to Italy for our 25th wedding anniversary. I have some amazing pictures to post in weeks to come.

But for today, I want to share with you the most beautiful woman in the world to me.

My mom...

I wish you could have known her. Her beauty was inside and out!

Sadly, she passed away while my husband and I were traveling. But my wonderful family held vigil with Daddy at the hospital after shooing us out of the hospital to go on our long planned trip.

Her service was touching.

She was the most awesome mom I could ever have had.

Mom, I will miss you dearly.

But I know you're dancing in heaven. No more pain. I'm happy for you.

I will love you always.

Love,
Mary

Mom loved the family beach trips....


When I grow up, I want my marriage to be like theirs!!


Our big, crazy, loving family! Thanks Mom and Dad!!!

I'll never forget your smile Mom!!!! You're so beautiful!


Thanks for dropping by! I'm posting a tribute to her on Monday. She taught me so much. 

I'll do my best to return linky love!

  16. Mary,
    Beautiful tribute to your mom. My mom is actually visiting right now, and this prompted me to quit trying to catch up on work, and instead go and grab some coffee with her!

    I just bounced over after reading your piece over on the Blue Ridge Conf site. I'm heading to the conference tomorrow, and I'm super excited!

    Thanks for the write!
