SOLC #6 I Miss My Mom But I am Thankful for My Man
I came home this afternoon with my right tonsil inflamed. I couldn't understand why I was so tired and willing to watch television all day yesterday. Then, as I was getting ready for bed, I felt a heat wave come over me and my tonsils started to ache. I do not remember a winter season where I haven't had to battle strep throat. I have had my mom armed with a flashlight checking my tonsils more times than I can count.
Mom has been gone almost three years, and there isn't a day that I long to hear her voice.
However, when I am sick, I need my mamma. She could tell in an instant what I had and what medicine would work best. No one has ever comforted or looked after me like she did.
Until today...thankfully, when I called my husband this afternoon he immediately said, "let me look in your throat and see when you get home." Oh I was so thankful for those words!!
Instantly, I was reduced to tears......(I know, I know...shocking!)
This precious man that I have been given has been exactly what I needed tonight. He used a flashlight to check my throat, told me to start the antibiotics, and is taking care of me. I know my mamma is proud of him! I also know that God gave him the perfect words and has given me exactly what I need. I am blessed!
Jason is making you proud! He is taking care of your girl! I miss you!! Always!
