Memory of Mama #3

Hello to all my friends! I am going to keep this post short because it's uncomfortable to sit in an upright position right now because oh my burns. I had a cooking accident yesterday where I got 2cd degree burns on my thighs and stomach. But I felt bad for missing yesterday so I need to post this now.

Since I am hurt I want to share a specific memory of my Mama that I have. I have never forgotten it, and will always cherish it. When I was a teenager I was blessed with good health besides some very nasty colds. One of these times when I had a cold, Mama took me to the doctor to get looked at so I could get some medicine. It was just me and my mom who went, and I wasn't feeling good at all. Mama stopped at CVS pharmacy in Columbus where we were after we left the doctor. She went in and I stayed in the van because I was sick. When she came out she had a surprise for me. It was a kitty notepad that came with a matching kitty pen. I have always loved cats (my mom, too), and she knew I would love it. That little thing has always meant so much to me, and I never forgot it. No matter how small things can be to us, we never know how big they are to others.

I just thank my Mama for always taking such good care of me and my siblings when we were sick. She always put us before herself, and I am so thankful she was so caring and kind. I still remember her hand on my forehead checking my temperature, cleaning me up when I was sick, sitting beside and praying for me, and so much more.

I need to go lay back down now. I just wanted to share this with you. I love you so much Mama and I thank you for everything you did for me!

I believe God's healing is strongest in a mother's touch. There is nothing better than being able to lay your head on mom's shoulder when you're sick. I am such a big baby inside, there are days when all I want to do is lay my head on my mom's shoulder so she'll make it all better. You memory of the trip to CVS was so sweet, I agree, the little things are what sticks with us the most. Your mama was an angel to you and still is. Hope you feel better soon!

Love ya!
