I can't seem to think about anything else this morning accept for my Mama.
Recently, I've started referring to her as Nana, since that's what she is to my kids. But before she was Nana, she was always Mama.
The Mama that I loved to visit. I have tons of memories of trips to Amarillo, walking to the drug store behind her house, playing penny poker, sleeping on the couch, watching Days Of Our Lives (she's an avid fan, and has been forever!), always seeing her Bible on her night stand, watching her make lunch for my Papa (pimento cheese or ham and olive sandwich with a real Coke in a glass bottle, if I remember correctly) - I could go on and on.
Right now, Mama is in the hospital, and has been for about a week. A few months back she had back surgery and now she is suffering from what appears to be complications from that surgery. I haven't seen her in about a year and my heart is heavy.
If you're a praying person, would you please pray for Mama? Her faith is very strong and I know that she has complete trust in the Lord and whatever His plan may be, but her family - although our faith is strong as well, we just love her very much and pray that she makes a complete recovery.
Philippians 4:6 "Don't worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God."
