In loving memory of my Mom, Wanda!
Today, July 9, 2020 is the 6th anniversary of my mom’s passing. I’m having a hard time today and can’t seem to get in a rhythm of anything. She died after having a massive stroke. My mom loved to do whatever she wanted, especially if it wasn’t good for her. She never kicked the habit of smoking cigarettes. Oh, she would stop for a while, but she kept going back to them. For over 50 years, they controlled her life. She passed away at the young age of 67. She was a diabetic, but enjoyed a donut with her diet Dr. Pepper.
In the photo above, she is wearing a T-shirt that my sister and I bought her. It was the perfect shirt that summed up her attitude. If you can’t read it, it says…”I’M JUST GONNA NOD AND ACT LIKE I’M LISTENING”. That was my mom in a nutshell. No matter how many times we talked to her about her bad habits, it went in one ear and out the other. I am thankful that she is not here to deal with this pandemic. As worried as I am about my kids, grandkids, other family members and my friends, I would probably get old quick worrying about my mom. Days like today, put our whole lives in perspective.
She loved Elvis, her friends and family, and Jesus Christ! I know she is smiling from heaven!
