A day at the Capitol, This was the first trip that I took with her and my stepdad when they came to visit me In September of 2013. She loved going down to the Capitol, her and I were alike, when it came to exploring new places. I remember several times going to the Capitol with her, we finally even ate at the Capitol Grille a couple of times. These are the very good memories that I will keep.
One thing she loved doing was riding on the bus, she loved to go to different places, and not have to drive there. She was still learning the city by vehicle, but on the occasions she did not want to bother with the traffic, we would hop on the bus, and take it almost anywhere. She was a real trooper.
My asthma and allergies flared up bad this morning, I was to work today, but decided to call out and head down to the walk in clinic. Where I got some medication for my flare up, they put me on some prednisone, to reduce the inflammation, and I am still able to take OTC mucinex and also do my breathing treatment as well. I have a note that puts me off work for two days, but only going to take today off. I will be back at work in the am. It has been a pretty hard day. I really do not think I could have made it at work today anyway, I am so achy, from all the coughing, I just want it all to stop.
Yesterday made it a solid month since mom has been gone, we made it, teary eyed, and full of memories, but we made it. I made it. I go to church every Sunday with my family, Trying to get back to God, trying to get closer to Him, and His Word. It will take time, but I am committed to doing this.
Another day, another way. Keeping it moving forward.
This photo was the first time mom had gone to The Blanton Museum. It was a fun day after we got there, before it was a little nerve wracking, only because we took the bus, and we walked down to the museum, and I was figuring out which way to turn, but once I righted myself, we were on our way, and she loved it. I never did get a chance to take her to other museums around Austin, but she really did love this one. This is the stacked waters wall she is standing in front of. It was a very fun day indeed.
Church was stellar today, life class equally refreshing. Just listing to praise and worship songs on pandora, makes me cry, these songs are the songs we both loved,and sang in church, and with one anither, they fill my heart. I know she woul be happy right now knowing I am in church, that we all are in church. Getting closer to God, His Word. Today I am starting Proverbs in the Bible, I will read a passage each day. God has done so much for my soul and spirit, in these times. It is I who must draw closer to him.
I totally admire my friend Olivia, who went to Honduras, mission work. God is totally blessing this woman, she is truly the church in this world. I have been thinking of volunteering in the church bookstore. To be continued…
I know there are some major areas in my life that need cleaning up, I pray to God everyday to guide my steps, to give me discernment, and give me wisdom to see the truth of things, to send the ones that are supposed to be in my life, and the ones that are not to remove the ones that do not belong.
Did God remove mom from my life, because of a journey I need to be on, without her, I do wonder, but there are roads we have to walk. We will never be alone, because He is with us. Gods reasons are not our reasons. A time,and season for all. It has been 4 Sundays since she passed. I cried today. It will get better, this I know in my soul.
I love you mom.
My mom loved to fish, her and my dad, and all my family, loved fishing. When we found this area in Marble Falls, this was our go to fishing place. We would be there almost every week that we could. Mom had go fever, she was always ready to go, go, go. I love this photo, because it shows her in a place of peace. I loved to sit out there with her and my dad, and just watch them fish. My mom loved to fish.
Moms death certificate came today, we will be recieving her ashes tomorrow, or Saturday. It is so hard to comprehend that my mom, whi was so full of life, is gone. It is not some fuzzy dream that I am waking up from;it is the harsh reality of this life I live, that we all live. I know we will all be touched by this in time, does not make it any less easy to deal with. If only…
