A week ago today, I drove with my family from Chicago to Des Moines. As soon as we arrived, I went to see Mom in the hospital. As soon as I entered her room, she beamed at me. She said, “You look beautiful!”
I had puffy eyes from crying, all my makeup was worn away, I had just spent the whole day traveling, but yet Mom made me feel like I was the most wonderful daughter in the world.

You did look beautiful. I love you and I'll be there soon.
I think she truly believed you were the best daughter in the world. Still praying. . .
Hi Ginny…I just recently re-installed my feedly and I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. Your Mom sounded like a great lady!Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.-Peggy
That is what Mothers are supposed to do, always give love beyond measure. You were truly blessed to have her and her love for you will pour down into your children.Take care & God Bless.
I just have to add that Dad did the same thing to me – he didn't tell me I was beautiful (pluuease!)but when I walked into the hospital room he was so happy to see me! That was so precious!
