I can't believe it has been 3 years since the Lord took my darling mother home to be with Him. April 21st will forever be seared in my mind. Though that day became pain free for mom, our lives were changed forever.
There are still so many days where I think of her or go to call her. I want to tell her, "Listen to "Inger" read." or "Mom, I need you to pray. I'm having a rough day." And she would tell me, "God is using this, Sarah Jeannie." She was always a constant source of encouragement to me and our family.
It's amazing as life goes on, how much more I become thankful for this special woman in my life. She inspires me to be the mom I need to be.
I know I love to have people over to my home because she did.
I know I love to serve and help in the body of Christ because she did.
I know how strive to love all people around me because she did.
I know how important God's Word is because she did.
I am the mom I am because God gave me an amazing mom (and dad).
(This is one of my favorites the year before she died. Anyone who knows mom can appreciate this.)
