There is one word I can use to describe my mom and it is "Love". She lived her life with love for God, her family, friends and neighbors including the most needy. She was kind, compassionate and charitable of her time always serving and helping those in need. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It keeps no record of wrongs, Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." This is how she lived her life. Everything she did was with love. 1 John 4:16 says "God is love, whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them."
My mom, sister and me in 1954 in Columbus Georgia. My dad and mom worked in the cotton mills and we lived in a white cotton mill house. It was only a 3 room house. My beautiful mom would come home with cotton all in her hair but she never complained and was grateful to have a job, a roof over our heads and food on the table.
