My Mom Dixie George
Well look at you. You finally made it. Your first Mother’s Day in Heaven. Your prayers have been answered. I’m so proud for you. All that suffering you went through down here is now long behind you.
There has been many years that I didn’t get you a gift for your special day, but WOW you got a special gift this year. I can picture you walking the streets of Gold, Worshiping our Lord in song. That beautiful singing voice of yours has been restored. Not much doubt in my mind that you are leading the Heavenly Choir in praise. By now, I’m sure you have been reunited with all the family that went Home before you.
You loved to watch the Gaither Homecomings…..I would suspect, by now, that you have sang with Jake Hess, George Younce, and Your all time favorites…The Chuck Wagon Gang. Just a reminder, mom. Go easy on Vestal Goodman. It will be hard on her now that she’s not the highest voice in Heaven. Guess you two can do a duet and maybe you can hold back just a little so she will not be embarrassed. Man, I can’t wait to sit and listen to you again someday.
Somehow, knowing you are in Heaven has renewed my spirit. You’ve gathered up your grandbabies and are spoiling them, trying to keep dad in line, and loving every second of it.
This will be the first time I cannot personally tell you “Happy Mother’s Day, I Love You.” Words mattered little to you and I over the past 8 years. That old stroke took your voice and crippled your old body but it was unable to cripple your spirit. Your eyes always told me that you loved me too.
You were my first love, you gave me my first kiss, you loved me unconditionally. No matter what “dumb” thing I did (and there were MANY) you were always there to help me pick up the pieces. You knew how to heal “booboo’s,” mend broken hearts and to help a little boy believe in himself.
Everything good, everything true, everything loving that I learned, I learned from watching you.
Life will be much different without you here but I will carry on until we meet someday…..Over the Rainbow…..In Heaven.
Love you Mom
