Oh how I miss my mama…. today would have been her 87th birthday! She left us last May, not even a year ago. It’s so interesting the times when I miss her. I think about her every single day. I wonder what she’s doing, what her and my daddy have been up to, and I wonder lots if she knows what I’m doing.
This flannel shirt I’m wearing was my mama’s. When she passed, we all took turns going through her closet and choosing things we would want to keep in her memory. This red flannel shirt and her UGG slippers are what I chose. She loved soft and comfy and cozy clothes. This shirt she would wear when she was going out to meet her friends or family.
Red was mama’s favorite color too. So…… I HAD to wear red boots with her red flannel. I also had to find some kind of red for our backdrop as well. She was always happy with her red, and many of the clothes that I bought for her were red. I think she would have approved of the pearls as well!
I’m wearing your red flannel shirt today, in honor of what would have been your 87th BIRTHDAY! RED was your favorite color and so I had to wear red boots too and find a red backdrop! I think about you EVERY DAY. Less than one year ago, you left us to go be with daddy and I know that you’re there with him building your kingdom together! It’s funny what things make me think of you. When I’m on the road and need someone to talk to, to keep from falling asleep, I miss you then. When I have a very personal question about LIFE that I don’t dare bring up with anyone else, I miss you then. When I need to just unload, I miss you then. When I want some of your sensible advice about my children, I miss you then! And I especially miss going to the temple and lunch with you….. your very favorite!
I LOVE YOU MAMA! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! XO
These are all reasons why I miss my mama. Now that she’s gone, I realize even more how amazing she was. I’m forever saying to my husband, “How did my mom do it. How did she do all that she did?” There is no question to any of us, that she was a woman of God. Her EXAMPLE affects me EVERY DAY!
Here are some super cute flannel shirts to shop….. tis the season for FLANNEL!
