    A beautiful trail for the lost wanderer… Thank you Natasha! God bless you and your beautiful Mama!

  2. Beautiful Natasha! I want to be like your mama…with a legacy left in her children and all those who knew her.

  3. This is amazingly beautiful. Your mama sounds like an absolutely incredible gift of a woman. Thank you for sharing her with us like this.

  4. Memories of your mom are sweet — small group evenings sharing our thoughts and hearts as kids played…her support of your dad as they led worship at church… hearing the cries of her heart for those around her. You are blessed to have such a woman of God as your mother! Bless you as you learn from her and move on in life.

    Tasha–I love anyone who loves my children. Thanks for the tribute to my daughter!

  6. There are just no words to explain how fortunate I have been to have a third daughter of a sort (your Mom)’ you have said it well. Love, Norma

      Oh, Norma– how I’ve appreciated you through the years. I am so thankful for your godly influence in my mother’s life (as a second mother) and in my own life (as another grandmother). Happy Mother’s Day to you too!

  7. I have had several women spur my faith, but my mom has really affected me. My mom struggles with understanding big words, but she knows her God is alive and well, and has never let me forget that. She doesn’t have an answer for all of the questions atheists throw at us, but she knows there is a God and she knows He is kind. She helps keep me going.

      Oh, Symanntha– your mother’s faith is priceless. Exactly the kind that Jesus said would be honored by the Father in heaven.

  8. You are definitely honoring your mother in the beauty of your words. Through your testimony, I feel I have already met her–and what a privilege.
    I have a wonderful mother who sacrificed much for her children. I cannot love her more. However, her faith is quiet, more private. I am developing a confident, bolder faith from mentors, virtual and in flesh. So many lovely ladies, fearless for the truth and love of Jesus Christ.

      Praise the Lord for your mother’s quiet faith and for the confident bold faith of your mentors. They are obviously working a bountiful harvest in you.

    Natasha, tears are rolling down my cheeks right now. This was so beautiful and so true.
    You see I was first friends with your Grandma Polly, then I had your mom and your uncle Ron in school. I have never forgotten your Mom’s leadership in 2nd grade during an emergency. To read your tribute, is so wonderful. I know much of this story but not all. Last summer I spent some time with Cheri at the Lewis Co. Fair. Hope to see her again this summer as we will be renting for a month in Lowville. Thank you for the blog. Especially this week has been wonderful with the Ebook.Gail Snave. Your mom and Uncle Ronnie’s music teacher at Lowville Academy.

      Thank you for stopping by, Gail! And for this little glimpse into my mother’s childhood. 🙂 I can well imagine her taking care of everyone in an emergency.
