Mama Lulu (My mom) is leaving us tomorrow. It'll be a sad day. She's been here since April 15th and we have loved having her here. She's so easy to be around, so encouraging, and she works so hard to bless our family and ease this transition. This verse comes to mind when I think of my mom:
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
That's quite a difficult challenge but my mom truly lives this way and has blessed and loved us so well. We will miss her but she says we need to be a family of 3 (or 4...with Powers) now. I know she's right but I just get a little weepy thinking about her leaving. I've gotten used to having her close and not so many states away in Louisiana.
She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed
We'll see you soon, Mama Lulu. We love you!
