Smiler, it is so good for the Lord to keep you around this long for everyone else. She must have been quite a woman, your mother, and am sure you, like me, are remembering your mother especially today, Mother's Day. (if you are in the USA) Mine lived to be only 70 and I have now outlived her by 10 years. If you do the math... bless you much. JoThank you all for your kind thoughts.
I continue to be blessed, looking back to a year of guidance and mercy, and trusting Him in the coming year.
Yes, sandpiper, I am happy to be able to continue in God's purpose for me, but still have five years to do before I catch up with my Mother's stint at 98.
Once again, I have found it true that the more Birthdays you have, the older you get.
