Last night my sisters and I surrounded my Mother as she left this earth for her new home in Heaven.
My Mother was my rock, my best friend, my comfort....everything.
My Mother is the reason I am the woman I am today.
When I was 13, my mother patiently sat me at her precious sewing machine time and again until she had taught me to properly sew. "No short cuts Maureen, no unfinished edges or seams"....keep it neat. She made me a perfectionist, made me pay attention to detail whenever I sewed anything. She is the reason I am the artist that I have become.
I'm SO PROUD to have called her Mom, our family was SO BLESSED to have been able to share part of her 79 years on this earth.
She was so strong in her faith in God and became my prayer partner. But God needed her more.......
We rest assured that she is with her Heavenly Father and our family members that have gone before her and rejoice in knowing that we WILL one day have a reunion with her in Heaven.
I'm sure you are wearing the biggest set of wings.......
