Today I am celebrating my mother, Rosa Lee!
Today would have been her 80th birthday.
When my mother was still alive we would ask her how she was doing and she would say “Oh, I’m having a grand time”! She would put such an emphasis on the word grand that you could not help but to smile with her.
There were many times in the last couple of years of her life, that she did not always remember who I was when I would visit her. She would recognize my children and call them by name, but she would look at me and could not remember. She would even say that my children were Jackie’s children but did not realize that I was Jackie! I would tell her that it was okay and then I would ask her how she was doing. She never failed to say she was fine and she was having a “grand time”!
Towards the end, when her memory and health were fading more and more, she would still continue to tell us she was having a “grand time” !
I can only imagine that every day since January 5, 2011, the day the LORD called her home, that she has been having a “GRAND TIME”!
To God Be the Glory!
It is with much love that I am celebrating Rosa Lee!
