Daughter and Mother

Daughter and Mother

This morning my sweet Momma passed away and words cannot describe how much I miss her and how quiet it is here without her. Of course my brother and I are grieving but we know that she is now in a better place where she can stand and walk and jump and run in the presence of the Lord.

My mother was an incredible woman. She withstood a lot of discomfort along with limited mobility but she never gave up. My first post last year, after introducing this blog, was about her. You can see that post here. I showed her most of my blog posts and she enjoyed looking at all the pictures I took as well as some from other blogs.

When I took the Photo 101 class, my mother and I thought it would be a good idea to photograph our hands together to address one of the challenges. I am so glad we did because I treasure this photographic memory.

It is really hard being without her. We shared constant conversation and I keep wanting to tell her things. I am so lucky and grateful to have such a great brother to help me through these tough times. As believers, envisioning the freedom of movement that my mother must now have has brought us both solace. She has fought the good fight, finished the race and kept the faith as described in 2 Timothy 4:7. We know we will see her again.

  1. My mom has cancer and she’s very sick and I’m afraid of loosing her I’ve lost someone very close to me my son so I know the heartache loosing someone and I know god is with her and me and I know it is in his hands like today I was washing dishes and this horrible feeling came over me if I was going to see her again and I just had to call her of.course she didn’t answer how did you get through that


  2. I am so sorry for your loss, and my thoughts are with you.
    I believe that when we pass from this world to the next, we are made whole, are free from pain and worry, and at peace. I know I’ll see my father again. For the moment, I am content for him to visit me in my dreams, but he is forever with me, as your Momma will be with you and your brother.


  3. So sorry to hear this. I remember you posting a lovely photo of your mother on one of the challenges & this photo of your hands is beautiful. Deepest sympathy to you and your family.


  4. Oh Tildy I am so very sorry about your Momma. I remember the photo from 101 and I remember the story you told about her. I know she was a wonderful woman and I know you loved her dearly. She will be sadly missed I am sure. I am shedding tears now for you, I broke down reading your post. I will be sure to give my Mum an extra hug next time I see her. Am sending virtual hugs to you right now xoxoxox.


  5. Sending lots of love and prayers your way. Glad you can have the assurance that your Momma is with the Lord. Consider yourself cyber-hugged! ❤


  6. Lots of love and hugs your way. I am so sorry.


  7. I’m so, so sorry for your – your pain is unimaginable. You and your brother are in my prayers. xx


  8. I’m very sorry to hear that, Tildy. My deepest sympathy to you and your brother.
    I read acceptance in your words, and mutual support with your brother. That’s very comforting to go through this pain in this initial phase, counting on one another.
    Although just like you said, the memories of all moments with her, are very painful.
    I wish you peace and harmony in the days ahead, and send you a hug with much love.


  9. So sorry for the loss of your dear Momma, Tildy. Sending you and your family my sympathy, and condolences. Such a lovely photo of your hands – a memory to treasure. May you find peace,
