Cafe Chat


This week in honor of Mother's Day, the question is
"What is the greatest lesson you have learned from your mother, or other mom like figure in your life?": During my Mommas precious life, she taught me so many valuable lessons. The values that she taught me, I will forever treasure. But, the greatest lesson that I learned from her, was how to love others unconditionally. My Momma never met a stranger, she was a friend to all. She always had a kind word, and a great big hug to share with everyone. She never had much money, but she was beyond rich, because she had a heart of gold. She use to tell me all the time, if I have a nickel, you have a nickel Nesie. She would give you the very shirt off of her back if you needed it. Her precious love continues to flow throughout my life, thank you Momma.

Denise, I thought of you several times while I was away. I have not even been able to sit down and check e-mail yet! Sorry :) But I will get to it maybe Monday night.
I know Mother's Day will be hard for you and I have thought much about that for you. Been praying for you as well.
I loved your encouraging Mother's Day thoughts here. You are such a blessing dear friend.
