|being "capped", a tradition for nurses|
my dear momma went through high school and then on to nursing school and became an RN. she got married and by age 28 had 4 children...and then she found out she had a brain tumor. we only had her for 2 more years. she lived just 2 weeks past her 30th birthday.
|this is my mom's brother Thomas wearing a wig to make her laugh after |
her brain surgery. (her head had been shaved).
so many days i have longed for her. i wish i could have known her-really known her. every single thing i have ever heard told about her make me proud to be her daughter. at her funeral (on valentines day) the pastor said "laura loved, even more than she WAS loved".
* happy birthday mom. i love you~
happy birthday to my dear aunt dora too!
|my sister, mom and i--wasn't she lovely?|
one last thing...i promise not to write about sad things now for awhile, but since my blog is fairly new
i just couldn't pass up the opportunity to tell you about my mom. : )
