When Your Mom is not here to Celebrate

    1. Dearest Wendi, thank you for your kindness. This grief journey was hard because it involved a lot more than just her death. I am at peace now, thank You Jesus! You are getting to “meet” my mom in ways I haven’t shared, Wendi. I am so happy I can share these things, that I can remember these things. Have a beauty-full weekend. I pray God blesses you in a mighty way this weekend.

  1. Julie,
    I love this picture of you & your Mom and your poem & story. There is much love and joy coming from both! ๐Ÿ’œ It is good for us to remember every bit of the good things with our Mother’s. When I remember those hurtful memories, they are the ones that give me empathy today for others hurting. Though, as I was dealing with a Mother who had mental illness, she also had a deep faith in Jesus. I struggled with love & hate at the time. Eventually, she overcame it with Jesus help and that strong faith she had. Praise God! Today, I see it is the mental illness I hated and not my Mom. This showed me, we all have struggles, some are more debilitating, “all of them” especially when we don’t have Jesus.
    I think everything we go through is drawing us to the One who really loves us. It’s up to us to accept His help or turn away.
    Thank you for sharing and encouraging others to look for the good to remember in our loved ones.
    Love you and I pray you have a wonderful & blessed Mother’s day with your boys(Rocko too)!
    In Christ’s love,
    ๐ŸŸ ๐Ÿ’œMary

  2. I am so sorry to know you lost your Mom. She sounds like a strong, passionate woman. I pray as you celebrate Mother’s Day, her life reflects in your eyes, heart and soul. She is a part of you, and it’s a joy to see. Happy Mother’s Day!

  3. Thank you for sharing from the deep places of your soul, dear Julie. My Mom loved Jesus deeply, but there were many things with her that the Lord is still healing in my heart–especially as I now face so many similar illnesses that she had. But I miss her so much too. It is so amazing when He shows us how He was so present in every hurt-filled place with His own GRACE. I pray that He is bringing you such blessing now, dear sister. Your poem is so beautiful. Love and Hugs to you.

    1. Oh thank you sister. I need you to know your words came at the perfect time. I do well to minimize Facebook on the actual Mothers Day, but still today many, many happy mother/daughter pics. Breathing in His grace and mercy as I continue my school reading. Love and hugs to you dear Bettie.
