My angel in heaven. . .

my mother, Ressie Roween Russell Smith. . . She was and is my greatest encourager. . .not a day goes by that I don't think of her and the influence she had on my life. . .I have always said if I could just be half as good a mother as she was, I would be a tremendous success! I love you momma!!!


The roses above are from my cottage garden, picked with love and "given" to each of you as we celebrate Mother's Day this weekend. Thank you, God, for our mothers and the wonderful influence they have in this world. God bless each of you!!!

Your photo of your mom inspires me to post one of my mom, some day soon. She is also in heaven.
