Oh, Mama!!

This is my last night having my mom here. She arrived the day after the accident with my sister Ang and her husband Mike. She has literally not left my side since! She stayed with me in the hospital and has been here helping me with the house and children since I have been home. I remember when she first came into my hospital room, around midnight I think, and suddenly it felt as if everything was going to be okay. Even at my age (almost 29 :) it's nice to have mom come and tell you everything is okay.  Although the circumstances were not what I would choose, it has been wonderful to have my mom here for 3 weeks!! She has been busy changing diapers, making meals, cleaning, giving baths and taking care of me as well!  I don't know what I am going to do without her. Actually, when the ticket was bought for her to fly back, panic set in! I didn't feel I was ready to be alone yet. However, a few more days have passed, and I am still wondering how we'll do on our own, but I am not anxious.

We kept mom busy while she was here, but we also had time to do some fun things that we ususally do not get to do together.

She helped decorate our Christmas tree for the first time ever!! We let her put the angel on...that's usually Ryan's job!

                                            She has read many bedtime stories to Aiden!!

We ventured out to the ladies Christmas tea.....I have always wanted to bring my mom to the tea!

                                  She even went to her first ever Coleman Christmas Parade!!!

                              And there was lots of this going on.....I LOVE his eyes in this one!!

Oh, we are going to miss her!!! Gretchen is taking her to MBS in the morning so she can head back to STL.  Please pray for safe travels for her!

Thank you mom for being here! I don't know what I would have done without you! I love you so much! Thank you for taking good care of Emma, Moriah, Aiden, and me. I enjoyed our time together, and I am so grateful for your help! God has given me a really amazing mom! We are going to miss you!



  1. I like that she's waring a Nebraska shirt.

  2. Moms really are the best aren't they? So glad your mom was able to be here for so long. Praying for an easy transition for all of you!
