“Life is amazing. And then it’s awful. And then it’s amazing again. And in between the amazing and the awful, it’s ordinary and mundane and routine. Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary. That’s just living heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful,
ordinary life. And it’s breathtakingly beautiful.”
Below is what I added on my Kim Designed Thank You Note
One thing I know is that my sweet mama believed in writing Thank You notes. I saw this quote and I knew how I wanted to create my “thank you’s” to you. In her life, she taught me a thing or two. She taught me that we should treasure “amazing” simply because we all know that amazing doesn’t last. Mama made me see how we could
Thank you for your kindness. She is smiling watching over me
knowing that I have good friends looking after me. Your incredible
thoughtfulness won't be forgotten!
*And this is where I would write the handwritten note to friends and family*
My sister blogged on my mom here recently, check out the post:
I also did a post on mom while she was living at The Oaks. We wanted her room to be super ArTsY funky.
A few years ago I did a post on Growing Up Cochran. This explains a lot about our childhood and what good parents we were blessed with.
On the day that we had my mom's memorial, the below picture was taken. Mama loved a rainbow. She loved what it stood for the in Bible. She was a definite Baptist through and through. 1965 and I know and yes, we can still sing the Books of The Bible - which we learned in Vacation Bible School!
On my parents anniversary, December 1, she sent a beautiful sunrise. This one made me laugh. Mama was not an early riser but Dad has always been. She knew he would be up early needing something special to counteract how we are missing her. So she created the beautiful sunrise above just for us...It was gorgeous down here in Tallahassee too!
A friend shared this below on Facebook, so I saved it. Went back to read it and decided to share it here in this post as it is appropriate and fitting for the content. Crazy enough it was shared on December 1!
