Artist's Description

This is a special dedication to my mom who is 90 today. I took this picture of her a couple weeks ago before she took a turn for the worse.
Up until this time, she has bounced back from breaking a hip and being resigned to lay in bed in a nursing home. After the death of my oldest sister this past March, my mother started going downhill from a broken heart. Why do our loved ones die too soon? This I can’t answer but when our loved ones knows Christ, we can rest in the fact that it is for a reason and a very good one. One day we will have all these questions answered.
Then the day after Mother’s Day my mom suffered a stroke after many mini strokes. This one took her speech. And again she questioned why did this have to happen to her. Once more I had to say, “Mom, I don’t know, but God does and His plans are perfect.” She declined speech therapy but did regain her ability to talk again.
Then a couple weeks ago, she lost alot of blood which this time there is no bouncing back. Why did this have to happen? I don’t know, only that I can be confident to know that when the Lord finally does call her home she will be free to dance and run, never to lay in a hospital bed again. She can be with her child one more time, re united with her husband and family and friends who all went on ahead of her.
But until that day comes, I want her to know I am thinking of her today, loving her in my heart and thoughts and praying for her peace and contentment on this her 90th birthday!!!
