Sweet Mama

As I mentioned last post, our sweet Mama had a birthday. I just HAVE to show you what I got for her, since my sweetest of sweet bloggy pals, Tabetha, made a very special necklace just for my Mama.

I told Tabetha that I wanted something for my Mama that was petite and sweet, jsut like she is! And I wanted it to have something involving ladybugs since ladybugs were "our" symbol during Mama's bout with breast cancer a couple years ago. Mama loves ladybugs and soooo appropriately: they are little and cute, just like she is! :) And even better, in French, the word for ladybug means "creatures of a good God" and this seemed so fitting as we trusted God to take care of her as she battled cancer. As she underwent chemo and radiation, we each wore a ladybug charm around our neck to show our support and love for her.

So I asked Tabetha to include a ladybug in Mama's birthday necklace, as well as "RED," Mama's favorite color. And it had to be petite and delicate, just like the Birthday Girl herself! Here is what Sweet Tabetha came up with. So perfect for my little Mama....
You can find Tabetha and her pretties here. She is just the sweetest!
And here we are (minus Sister #2, Jeanette, who lives near L.A.) having ice cream together. We missed you, Nettie!!!!! That's me on the far right with the headband...and that young lady on the far left is our cute Mama!
And this is Laura Joy (Sister #5) and I...And here is the Birthday Girl herself, opening the necklace, with my Emmy and Rachie looking on...
Our Mama (and Grammy) loved the necklace, Sweet Tab! Thank you so much. It was absolutely PERFECT.
Well, I'm off to bed now! Thanks for popping in, Sweets!

Love, Cheryl :)
