Vintage Style Mother's Day On Our Patio

Welcome to our vintage style Mother's Day on our patio and also Happy Mother's Day Week!
Today's post is all about celebrating the art of homemaking and remembering Mom and Grandma through their love of china and collectibles.
Preserving a collection is preserving History, an era, a thought, a moment, an event.
I loved preparing and photographing this post because it's all about celebrating women and the difference that my Mom and Grandma made and continue to make in my life.
In between all of this celebration of  life, we will be talking about being blessed and figuring out where these collectibles and china came from!
This Wedding China is my Grandmother's and is 100 years old.
I know I had the best Mother in the world and I just bet you do too!

Heaven Is For Real

My Mother In Law went to be with our Heavenly Father one month ago.

I miss her,

I miss her laugh,

I miss her joy, 

I miss her support,

I miss her voice. 

So, now, two of the most loveliest Ladies I have ever known are 

angels in Heaven- my own Mother and Mama Chris.




And with her passing feelings of loss over my own Mother returned 

and unexpectedly I felt frozen inside.  

My words left me.




Both of these caring, loving devoted Mothers lived full and abundant lives,

but they have left- moved on, if you will, and sort of left the rest of us

behind.




So what to do, when physically loving on them is over...

When sending a card, making a call, visiting on the phone, visiting in person

and hugging them tightly is over for us...




Well for me, it is knowing that Heaven Is For Real.

You know, that I really do know this, but my sadness got in the way of 

remembering - that this is really true.





Then, a sweet little miracle happened, because you do know that miracles

come in all shapes and sizes, and often times we just don't see them.

Because we seem to get so busy and take so much for granted on the wonder 

and precious parts of life. 





A sweet friend, who had just lost her sister-sent me this text.

"Look on your front doorstep."

I did...

Flowers...and

the book - Heaven Is For Real by Todd Burpo.



A precious and comforting little story of an extraordinary journey of a little 

boy making his way to heaven and back. 

A book full of encouragement, making our time on earth even more 

meaningful and our future more hopeful.







So, my words have come back to me.


Thank you to my dear blogging friends who have sent me emails with love

and support.  

You and your friendship mean so much to me.








My dear Mother and Mama Chris are no longer elderly, in pain, or weary 

and worn, they are restored to their perfect youth, vital, laughing and

with our families who have gone on before, loving us and looking forward

to when we are all together again.

In God's pure perfect plan, because...

Heaven Is For Real.
