Memory Lane

Yesterday was so fun! I spent the day traveling down memory lane—went to my alma mater for a football game and saw familiar places and faces. It brought back so many precious memories of my college and medical school days. Despite the fact that many years have passed, being there seemingly bridged the time gap bringing everything back together for another moment. For someone who has moved around quite extensively gathering “no moss”, feeling connected thrills my heart.

Mama

‭‭Exodus‬ ‭20:12‬ ‭ESV

March 12 is my mother’s birthday. Today I honor her in Heaven for sacrificing so much for me and for loving me enough to make me fiercely independent. There are so many precious memories, but one stands out above all other. My older brother died of melanoma at age 24 just 3 weeks before Christmas and my mother, along with my father, made sure that Christmas was extra special for everyone else. That kind of courage and love defined my mother and I am indeed thankful.
