Beautiful Spring Time......

I must begin by saying I am still deeply touched by all the encouraging and kind words from so many of you. Your beautiful sentiments were like gentle hugs.....thank you so much. You know, all we hear are the ills of the world and the lack of kindness it holds, but I wish for just one moment, just one little moment folks could just experience the heart felt kindness of so many of you precious women out there....you indeed are special. I also wish one day to meet many of you. I would just love that for sure!

Mother's service was absolutely beautiful beyond words. Lots of tears of both sadness and joy, she will be missed so deeply....so deeply. I will forever remember my Sweet Mother's smile and all she was and is to me. She indeed was a phenomenal woman here on earth and I just know she is graciously continuing her work in heaven above.... At this point, I ask myself just how will I go on with this life without her.....I know it will simply be one day at a time. I will miss my Dear Sweet Mother so, oh my how I will miss her so.

Our inner court garden is looking so pretty with these little purple flowers. Looking at them reminds me of the delicate shade of a purple jelly bean. Spring is such a beautiful time of year with its many colorways of beautiful flowers, mild weather, longer evenings, picnics, long drives, all the beautiful things that spring brings.

I have so much to do this week at Mom and Dad's home. We girls plan to do some spring cleaning and helping Dad with his "to do list". Once again thank you so much my beautiful blogging friends. I am looking forward to seeing all your beautiful gardens and crafts this season. Have a beautiful week.....

Friends and flowers
both are to be treasured.
And when it comes to
expressions of our affection
for special friends....I
think that flowers
are the nicest things
we can give.

I am so glad you have such beautiful memories of you mom, her life and the service that commited her to the Lord for her final rest. Her life sounds as if it blessed those who knew her, what better legacy can one have. She has a beautiful daughter who touches those around her with grace and compassion. Your pictures are beautiful as usual.

Oh! Beverly...I have been absent for a while and just now catching up. I am so very sorry to hear of your mom's passing. Your post about her was so moving...you put into words exactly how I felt when my mother died. I know your mother was a lovely, lovely woman..both inside and out...she had to be...as evident through your grace and love. I know how each day will bring both joy and sorrow to you and your family. I pray God continue to keep you wrapped in his loving arms...it is truly your faith in HIM that will guide you through this time.

Blessings and all my love and prayers.
Teresa

It is so hard to carry on without our loved one even when we know that they are in the best place. One day at a time is the only way, but she is always a part of you and never far from you.

Beverly, Just found your blog and so sorry about your mom. In the evening I go out and find a star. That star is my mother and I sit and talk with her. She will always be with you in memory and in the beautiful evening sky. Love all the beautiful pictures and will be back often

KJ said...

Beverly, I wish I could give you a big hug. I am praying that this season will magnify all of the wonderful blessings and memories that your sweet mommy left you with. She was a matriarch of the Faith! Oh, the homecoming she must have experienced!

Your flowers are beautiful!

My prayers are with you, Beverly.

Dearest Beverly, sweet sister in Christ, I must tell you that I "stumbled" upon your blog b/c I love tea, tea cups and roses. God sure knows what He is doing. After reading your blog about your beloved mother ... I prayed for you and yours. And then, just today (Sunday, 30 MAR) I had to attend a memorial for a darlin 9 year old girl, Brianna, she used to come into the scrapbooking store at that time I was working there. She lit up the room ... as I sense your mother did too. I kept hearing your beloved words. Thank you for sharing life and your blog. Blessings dear sister, michelle

Dear Beverly,

I cannot imagine what it must be like to lose your sweet mother but my heart aches for you.

I wish we could sit together for a cup of tea and I would hug you and we would cry together.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayer.

Love,
firefly

So sorry Beverly. My mother has just started living at a nursing home and this is not fun at all!
So glad you still have your daddy. I'll be praying for your family.
