Memory of Mama #7

Hello! I know I haven't posted anything about my mom in a couple of days. Jeremiah was off work, and we spent a lot of time together which was so nice. And that is why I didn't get on my blog. I checked it from my ipod, but I can't post anything from my ipod.

Anyway, I wanted to tell you about something I want to do. I want to get a tattoo. I know you are thinking, what does this have to do with my mom? Just bear with me, and soon you will understand.

All my life my mom loved red birds (Cardinals). She loved how pretty they are, but she also loved that they mated for life. It spoke to her heart more deeply because she believed that a man and woman, once they make vows before God, should stay together. She loved to decorate the house in red birds, and now red birds remind me of one. It never fails when I see a red bird, Mama comes to mind.

I see them often come into my yard, and I always like to think it's her way of telling me she loves me even because she isn't here to say it herself. It's a comforting feeling seeing a red bird because it reminds me my mom is alive and perfect and she is waiting on me in Heaven. So when I get my first tattoo, I want it to be a red bird because it means so much to me now.

I love you, Mama! Thank you for always telling me you love me and watching over me!

Remember how she did love apple shaped things. I got several apple shaped things in her memory.

Its funny how certain things speak to our hearts and remind us of a departed loved ones. I always think of Zoey when I see a butterfly and Mikey when I see frogs. I keep thinking one of these days I will find the image I want to use as a tattoo to commemorate them. Only problem, where do I want it? I have one on my shoulder but I have never been able to actually see it for myself. I have always said it I ever get another one I am putting it where I can see it. That limits me so I have done nothing yet.

By the way, getting a tattoo hurts like hell!! Better be committed to if before you do it and research any artists you are interested in thoroughly before they touch you. Can't change it once its done! :-)
