Today is Independence Day and my mommy's birthday. She would have been 76.
She has been around us a lot lately, especially last Saturday. Cindy and I had a garage sale at her mother-in-laws house. We were sitting in the heat waiting on our customers when Cindy says, "Look, a cardinal, momma is here" I didn't miss a beat with my reply, "she's not going to miss out on a garage sale". And the cardinal was a female. She flew around us all morning. Later that evening when Bella and I were at the fireworks, she was there again. This time through music and fireworks. While the fireworks were going, you could tune into a radio station and listen to music. Lo and behold, "God Bless Texas" came on. That was one of her favorite songs and she loved Texas and fireworks. I love it when she makes her presence known. I know she is with us all the time, but when little things like cardinals appear, its reassuring and comforting in a way.
Happy 76th Momma!! We love and miss you every single day.
Happy 4th of July!!
