Thankful Thursday

Today, I’m thankful for…


My Momma.

We weren’t always friends, you know.
First, she was my mother.

Mom and me, 77 

She tickled and played with me, and she comforted me.

Mom and me, b&w

She also taught me to mind.

She put up with me during my teen years.

Me and becca, 94

Me and my baby sister, Becca, when I was about 17 years old.

My momma around that same time.

Somehow, we made it through the rough transitions when I left home.
She helped me shop for a desk for my first apartment.

Now, she is more than my mother. She is my friend.

And I am so thankful.


  1. You are so lucky to have her around! But then again all of us who are blessed to call her friend or family are pretty lucky to know her!

  2. Fatima,
    This post brought tears to my eyes and warmth to my heart. I miss my mother so much...

  3. Thanks for sharing. What a tribute to your Mom.


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment. Comments make me so happy that I dance around the room! ;)
