“As I was going through her belongings, I found a birthday card that she never got to send me. I opened the card and it read.”
This chapter starts with thought provoking questions about how well you know your mother. It closes with questions that inspire a mother and a daughter to take off the mask, be deliberate about getting to know one another.
Sheri and her mom had a relationship that blossomed over time. Her mom was encouraging and continued to speak even after her passing; in the cards and letters that Sheri discovered.
Sheri was blessed to witness her mom grow in the Lord. But it was the journals that her mom left behind journals that revealed things her mom’s heart that she maybe didn’t get to all-together see. This chapter made me curious, I’d like to get to know a mother figure like hers.
Thank you, Sheri, for letting me read this selection. Your truth really touched my heart.
