Love and Strength

I've gathered much strength recently from the love that mom taught us all over the years. Can you teach love?  Oh, I think so.  She had so much love for her family--her children, her grandchildren and great grandchildren.  And through her example, I can happily say, we have always been there for one another. I know that when I'm feeling down, all I have to do is remember that beautiful smile that would light up your moment and make you feel that there was nothing that the love of family couldn't conquer.  

We all are so fortunate to have had her as a role model.  Thank you mom for teaching us the importance of family love and caring.  When it seems like there is nothing else, we always have the love of our families.

Words cannot express how I feel about this post of yours Rosemary... it certainly touched my heart to see all the lives that Mom was a part of. And I am honored that she was such a big part of my life. Not a day goes by that I don't think of that special angel of ours up there in wonderful it was and how blessed I was to have shared nearly 35 years of my life with such an incredible person.
Thank you for sharing these wonderful pictures with are such a sweetheart and it's not hard to figure out who you take after!!!

Oh, you can teach love by living it -- and I can tell Lillie Sue did exactly that! Your closeness to your family makes me smile.

My verification word is sapsap. Interesting -- lots of posts on this topic would be sapsappy -- not this one.
