Introductions to my Mom

My sweet Mom and Dad.

Well, the time is getting close to me signing off for a while.
I am not going to get all mushy...because I don't believe that is going to be a good-bye.
I know that there will be points here and there where I will be able to get on line and check in on each of you. Till then ....my sweet Mom is going to post updates here and there.
My worst fear is that I'll come back and ya'll will be gone and I'll have to start all over again finding girls with hearts like mine. That would be sad.
And I would get mad......just kidding.
So.......while I am gone none of you are allowed to quit blogging. ;)
Agreed?
O.k, now I thought it would be fun to let you introduce yourself to my Mom.
That way when I talk to her on the phone she can tell me who she has heard from...hey, maybe she will grow to love you just the way I have.
Since you are going to tell her a little about yourself...I'll tell you a little about her.

My Mom's name is Judy.....if you are from the Mississippi area....Judith Ann.
She and my Dad...Dewey...have four children and 12 grandchildren.
She spent most of my growing up years as a teacher
and then as a principal at one of our local Christian schools.
Since I was five they have been doing Christian camps for a group called Christian Business Men.
They have done as many as 4 during the summer but they are now down to 2. One in North Carolina and one in Texas. We do both of these conferences with them and my sister and her husband attend and teach at the one in North Carolina.
It is a family thang since my older brother lives there too....and yes, soon us too.

Mom and Dad have a home business that they do during the year.
It is called Prepaid Legal.
I promise my blog will not become and advertisement. ;) Dad is the sales person...lucky you!
But it is a really great business and keeps her and Dad very busy.
They zip here and there for conferences and in a few weeks they are going to Cancun because they got a trip as a reward for there dedicated hard work.
They are both of retirement age but they are still going strong.

Mom would love nothing more than to be in her yard working and she has a green thumb..like me. She loves Southern Living magazine and hopes one day to use all those clippings she has kept in a new home she will decorate on her own.
I would like you to know that she has a heart like me. Tender and huge!

When you meet her....you just love her. She has a huge heart for God....I love this about her.
That love spills over into her relationship with others.
She has been a great Mother to me and my brothers and sister. She will apologize for her short comings as a Mom....but we all think she is pretty great.
And we love her bunches!

So that is my Mom........
Be nice and leave her a little note telling her a little about yourself.
She reads almost all my posts so she probably is familiar with some of you already.
I'll be back later this week to post.
Love you guys!

Mom and Dad on their last visit to Cancun.

Sharon,

Thank you for introducing me to your very beautiful mother. She certainly should be proud of her daughter for she has grown to love God and teach others about Him.

I am looking forward to meeting her and I'm sure I'll love her just as I do you.

I don't plan on going anywhere and we will reconnect when you are able to get online.

Looking forward to another post from you.

Love and Blessings,
Mary

Sharon I agree not to go anywhere and enjoyed hearing about your mom and dad. I hope when you return she sets up her own blog because we will be good friends and will want to keep in touch with her too. I'm looking forward to sharing with your mom.

Judy:
I'm elaine. New to Sharon's blog. I feel like I've missed out on some of the details of her "current" but look forward to filling in the blanks in the days to come. I'm an NC girl also, but I really dislike Eastern NC barbeque (where's the red sauce I grew up with in KY?). How about you?
