I stopped by Walgreen’s this morning before going to Bible Study Fellowship. I visited their restroom to wash my hands, and as I glanced in the mirror, and in my reflection…I saw my mom! I literally did a double-take! I said, almost outloud, “Gosh, I look like Mom!” I smiled with that thought, yet I became very sad. Oh, how I wish I could see her again.
This hasn’t been the first time I’ve seen my mom in myself. I’ve heard her words come out of my mouth. I catch myself standing with my hand on my waist in the same way she used to. Bill saw Mom in me a couple weeks ago as I was driving our car, and he was in the passenger seat. Many people who knew my mom tell me how much I look like her. And I have to agree. I think I look like her more and more with each passing day! I wore my hair curly today, and on those days, I think I look even more like Mom. My hands even look like her hands! 🙂
There are days when the pain in missing her is overwhelming…like today after seeing her in my reflection. She was such a great woman, mother, wife and friend. If I can be half the woman she was, I would be very pleased. I cling to all the wonderful days we spent together…especially every Wednesday the last four years of her life as we would attend Bible Study Fellowship together. Those were some of the most precious times with her, as we were studying God’s Word together. I have hope though, knowing I will see her again some day as I am reunited with her when either Jesus returns, or when I go to my Heavenly Home. What a joyous day that will be!
Yes, I look like my mom, and I’m very proud that I do! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by.
I’d love to hear from you!
