The injured mom

The mom who cared for and lost her own precious mom long before an actual death.

The strong mom
God loving, God seeking, God fearing mom
The faith-filled mom
The Bible believing mom
The church going mom
The merciful mom
The praying mom
The ever evangelizing mom

She’s the mom of Preacher Mike
She’s the mom of Missy. I am always just Missy to her 😍
She’s the mom of Karen Lea who she’ll see again in heaven.
She’s the Ganny to 7 grandchildren and 4 great grands.
The mom to approximately 750 third graders and countless church kids!!!

No matter what in all these roles a few things are fact… my mom is a mom that perseveres, does it with a grace that is supernatural, and expects nothing less from those around her!!! If you know her and have been on the receiving end of her mothering…you can’t help but love her as your own.
