A Hurting Heart....

“I just want to make sure Mama. Sometimes I don’t even know what I want. A lot of times I’m just tired.” 
Mama reached up and smoothed Liza’s curls away from her face. “Well darlin’, that’s the sign of a life being lived. I think we’re all tired when we’re giving it our best.”

This is my Mom.
This photo really captures her.
She can be oh, so silly!
She is strong
and kind.

My Mom makes everyone feel special
and welcome. 
She goes out of her way to 
be a friend.

She loves to make things pretty...
her table is always set with most beautiful dishes,
her yard is filled with flowers 
and fairies.
The front porch is a place for rest and relaxation
with its plants and comfy furniture.
She has a way with adding flair to everything!

My Aunt Ruth is on the left and Mom is on the right.

My Mom has such STYLE!
She pays attention  to detail...
from her clothes, to her jewelry, shoes and even socks!
She loves to look NICE.
{my Mama always told me "Leslie Dawn it's important to always look NICE!"}

My Mom LOVES hats!
Big hats, little hats, hats with lots of sparkle.
The bigger the hat the better:)

I believe in the power of prayer...
and my blog friends...
I need your prayers right now.

My sweet Mama needs your prayers right now.

It's Cancer and at first we thought it was ok...
but there is more than we may have thought.

And I am hurting..
my heart is breaking 
and I don't know what to do.
