do not fear.

It has been a while since I have written a post. This past week I was out of commission due to the nasty stomach flu that has been going around. I have been under the weather the past week eating only broth--it is exciting to decide whether to eat Chicken, Vegetable or Beef broth. Oh exciting choices.

This weekend was also mother's day. I don't really like this holiday and I do like this holiday all in one emotion. I like it because there are mom's who should be celebrated extra, loved on and thanked for the love and support. And I don't like this holiday because it reminds me that my mom is not here to be celebrated extra, loved on and thanked for her love and support. And I get a little bit bitter and upset, and sad. But then I remember. That my mom has no more pain, that she is with Jesus. I can't even imagine what that must be like. But I know I can learn still from the example of her life. And make her proud--to be the woman she always dreamed of when she found out she was having a baby girl. To reflect Christ's Hope to people the way she did to me at age 10. And to not be afraid. That is what I remember the most... my mom was not afraid. I want to be like that. Lord, help me to live and believe the words, "do not fear."
