Today is Mother's day at the FIRST Mother's Day since Bobby's Mom/Mawmaw passed away. It was a hard day for Bobby and I both. He has been thinking alot about her lately. One day this past week he saw a billboard that said take your mom to Church this Mother's Day and it was so rough. First year ever (other than military service) he has not been in Church with his mom on Mother's Day. He had to work today so when he got off He and I and Noah took flowers to the grave together. I did not take a camera because before hand I did not think about it, Thank God for my phone, as I looked upon this scene I KNEW that I had to freeze this moment in time and that for years to come this would be an amazing picture. Father and son together in the moment. It tears us both up that Mom will not know Jeremiah! She knew about him, had herself worked to try and raise funds for him before her death. We began the journey End of March last year and she went home to Jesus the end of June. I like to think she is watching over us all and Jeremiah and may even know about our children to come, or at least might before we do!
The blue flowers are because Blue was her favorite color.
Happy Mothers Day to all my bloggy friends! Yall mean so much to me, I look at so many of you as family! You fellow mommas have taught me so much about being a mother!
Yesterday was our boot at the poke salad festival here. It was one of the MOST stressful days we have had in this journey. It was windy beyond imagination. The tent kept almost blowing AWAY! And the items we were selling did blow away over and over and over and over again. We would have to chase them down, and clean them off. To make the stress of all that worse, not only did we not make a profit at all yesterday we LOST about $50. I KNOW that Father God has got this, but boy is it hard to understand when we put so much time and energy and try so hard only to end up worse than before we started. BUT God works ALL things for Good! So we know there was something good that came out of it all. I will be posting some items on the fundraising blog for sale as well as on my facebook! Tomorow I have some shriners things to do to line up some things for Jeremiah and then I will be taking pictures of items to sell. We had so many amazing things donated and someone needs to have those things! :) I also will have a couple giveaway raffles going! :) Please stay tuned :)
Sticker Panda Boy! LOL
another shot of Noah! That child will turn ANYTHING into a toy! He is using a bag of mexican rice mix as a musical instrument in the store! :) LOL
Some Shots of my baby girl! She was being very playful in her dress she is gonna wear to graduation and was dancing all over the place and got even more fun when I pulled out the camera :) It all started with her stepping over the vent in living room
I guess that was her college graduation Photo shoot! ;) I have about 30 shots! Some she was dancing so fast are all blurry but they are all priceless! :)
My sweet Jeremiah! I JUST LOVE this shirt they made him! I love to SEE IT written by his picture I'M JEREMIAH! YES YOU ARE LITTLE BUDDY! :)
Jeremiah my sweet frogie boy! Today has been so rough not having you here but it was good in that I KNOW it is the LAST Mother's DAY you spend without your mommy :) We are working so hard little man to get all the details together and final funds raised to come and get you! I can't WAIT till June 7th Taiwan time when I get to hold you and see you face to face! I can't wait to look into your eyes and see if you can see me! I think so much about the "visual dysfucnition" and what that means and entails and I pray about it and I think and I study on ways to help your vision and ways to show you the world if your vision is not there like it should be. There are so many unknowns about you sweet boy and I just dont know how to prepare, how to make sure I bring the right things and all and then I have to remind myself, that what we all need most is each other! If I got the wrong kinda toys, we'll get the right things later, if I got clothes that are too big, we will put the smaller one on at home, if they are to small I will make do! LOL ALL that matters is we will be together and I can begin doing all in my power to be the best mommy to you I can possibly be! I LOVE YOU with all my heart Jeremiah Harold Sisemore and no matter what you can or can't ever do it is ok! You will be the best you can be and we will do all we can for you :) Its getting closer sweet buddy! Hang on tight! and while you wait, catch my kisses in the wind! :)
