Living A Dream...

Jeff's chest-a-drawers. We will be putting a mirror up tomorrow that matches the picture a few photos down.

My dresser! Love it...

Corners in the room! Love it! The walls are "Cowslip" - Kinda of a buttery cream. The ceiling trim & baseboards are white!

I love this photo - The matching mirror I received from my former boss & it will be placed above Jeff's chest-a-drawers.

Ahhhhhh. My favorite. I love this big bed... It's sooo super comfy .... The comforter, pillows, sheets, pillowcases I got from J.C Penny's...

Opps.... I told 'ya I love it.... Didn't mean to post it twice tho!

My night stand - It only came with one so we have ordered another one - hopefully it will be here by the end of next week! The wood floor is another favorite - it looks so much better than the yucky ole brown grody carpet!

This is the view to our bedroom as we walk out of the master bath...

I am soooo pleased with the way the room turned out - Please leave me a comment & let me know what you think!!!

A beautiful day

Today the sun shining was so great! It was nice to get out of the house and just walk around & be able to praise God for all of his glory. It is comforting to know that my momma is in heaven & enjoying all of its beauty as well.

Kapriel is on spring break this week - it has been a blessing to have her here with us and help us keep our mind on her & not dwell as much on our loss.

I hope everyone has enjoyed today as much as I have.

God Bless

Thank You...

I would just like to Thank everyone that has lifted my family up in prayer this past week... it has been very hard & I just want you to know that the prayers are helping. Just when I feel like I can't go on - I feel a gentle nudge and a peace & I know that God has me wrapped in his hands.

I want to share the poem that I wrote for my momma...

I can't see you
But I know you're here
I carry my memories
In my heart - very near.
I miss you with every breath
And your precious face
There is no one that could ever
Take your place.
A childhood of memories
By a life so blessed
Being your daughter
Is simply the best.
Your with Jesus now momma
Your body is whole
But it doesn't make it any easier
To let you go.
You gave me everything
You gave me life
You were my momma
And my daddy's wife.
In God I find comfort
Just as you did
Peace comes from knowing
And being a Kings Kid.
I'll see you again
My goal - Heaven Bound
You'll know I'm coming
By my "halleuiah" sound.
Flutter your angel wings
Eat brownies galore
Rest peacefully now my momma
Your inside Heaven's door.
Teresa "Sissy"

I will remember you....

My momma went to her eternal home in heaven on Thursday morning, March 6, 2009 at 4:39a.m. after a long and couragious battle with cancer.

She was surrounded by my dad, my brother, my aunt, a special friend, Ms. Betty,a grand-daughter, my husband & myself. We held her hand & prayed for her as she departed this world. We know she is in a much better place - but we struggle with not having her here. I already miss so many things about her...

Please pray for strength, comfort & peace for my daddy. They were married for 48 years - his heart is truly broken.

Visitation will be on Monday, March 9th from 5-7p at Moore's Funeral Home
Funeral services will be on Tuesday, March 10th @ 10a at Black Oak Church of Christ.
