I keep coming here with the full intention of posting something but just can't seem to get past my Mothers death.  I see my last post was made on mothers day and I didn't even make mention what an amazing mother I had.  Little did I know that she would be gone in a few short weeks.  She was 94 but had lived independently and in good health all of her life.  She had the most beautiful giving spirit.  She truely didn't store up treasures on earth and gave generously of what she had.  When we looked in her check register we saw she faithfully wrote out her tithe, her rent, a few groceries and the rest of her social security check was written out in 5 and 10 dollar checks to as many charities and mission work as it would afford.  She was a true christian in every way.  She had no evil to say about anyone.  I cannot recall her ever putting me down or saying any unkind thing to me.  I was with her for the last week of her life and she remained faithful and trusting Jesus to the end.  Even though she knew what awaited her in death she never had a desire to die but wished to remain so she could pray for her family.   Her life was difficult but she didn't complained.  As my brothers and I were talking about our childhood we began to realize how much freedom she gave us...We were very poor but never knew it.  She trained us in the way we should go...  I was blessed to have such a precious saint for a mother for so many years but I still miss her...
