Walk to The Point

Mom Painting By Number
I am enjoying having my Mom spend time with me in my home. She has never stayed in my home and visited so this has been a fun time for me.
We have taken short walks outdoors enjoying Alaska's golden fall. Once we walked with umbrellas, in the rain. She has trouble walking on uneven ground so we ended up walking arm in arm with our umbrellas fighting for the honor to cover our heads. I ended up with Mom's rain dripping on to my shoulder. I will never forget the fun we had walking and resting on our 'neighbors' porch swing.
We are painting too. We can visit while we paint. "Uh-uh," she said today as she realized she painted in the wrong spot.
We have enjoyed sitting on the deck watching ducks and loons while we ate a simple meal of salmon spread on wheat bread, grapes, chocolate chip cookie and hot tea.
Tonight Mom and I watched movies. We watched Hanging Up and In The Pursuit of Happyness. I made popcorn and as Chris Gardner's wife left him Mom commented, "She does not even stay with him." "She's supposed to be his helpmate." "We are supposed to endure hardship as a good soldier." I turned to her and told her, "Mom, you are a very good soldier."
She is. She endures hardship. Mom raised ten children. She lived and loved a man that was an alcoholic in their young lives. She stuck with him. She passed on to her kids truths from God's word; the importance of including God in our lives; speaking His words as we live our lives. I've listened to her repeatedly applying God's promises to every situation she hears of.
This write was inspired by Mom. She loves Jesus Christ and she loves when her children love Him too. I am thankful for this time we are sharing and am loving her thoughts, her wisdom, her time, and her memories.
