My Mom



"My mother...she is beautiful, softened at the edges and tempered with a spine of steel. I want to grow old and be like her." Jodi Picoult


Meet you back here Friday for one of my favorite Moving Thoughts Friday questions this month!

  3. Beautiful picture, Wendy. And it brought a rush of tears to my eyes. My mother is a huge part of who I am. This has been a challenging month for my family. My youthful mother is facing a triple bypass next week. We have peace about her surgery, but the events leading up to it have been filled with anxiety. So thankful for a loving God to shoulder those burdens.

    Hey, I opened a copy of Love is a Flame last week, and there YOU were! What fun to read your story while sitting at the Philly writers conference! Kudos to you, and prayers for the perfect agent soon.
