Birthday Memories X3 - Jaiya, Gerrie & LuckieMama’s with me this morning…

From the early morning laugh with my big sister Gina in DC, quoting Mom’s favorite prayer to cover her future generations — blessings to her children’s, children’s, children… to my eldest Jerold, Mom’s namesake, posting her Marvelous Tribute video via Facebook. Memories too beautiful to make me do anything but smile.

Then as I attempted to replay her favorite, Walter Hawkins “Marvelous“, I somehow ended up with “I’m Not The Same” on the Hawkins Love Alive CD!

You talk about memories?! Her FAVORITE Gospel CD — EVER!

It’s a if I can see her swaying, rocking her head and singing…

And now I’m not the same
Because everything has changed because of Christ
Somebody said, somebody said, they told me
They said that I wouldn’t make it
Somebody said, somebody said
They said that I couldn’t take it
Oh, I’m not the same, I’m not the same
Can’t you see?
Everything, oh everything, everything has changed because of Christ

I hear you Mama…

Without question, I KNOW you’re okay! And yes… we, all your children’s children’s children, are getting there.
