A hard week...

Early Monday morning, our sweet Mama Dot went home to be with the Lord. These past few days have been very hard for our family, and I know there are some really sad days ahead. We rejoice knowing she is in the presence of Jesus, but oh how she will be missed here. Please remember my family, particularly my mom and her siblings, in your prayers. She was so precious to us.

Mama Dot swinging with the girls. She loved that swing!

Visiting Leo the lion. Mama Dot is the reason my Lily loves lions.
She has been taking her grandchildren and now
great grandchildren to visit UNA's mascot for years.

Mama Dot with her cat, Josie. This picture makes me laugh every
time I look at it. She was never a cat person, but this little stray
found it's way to her back door. She has loved him ever since. Yes,
the cat is male. Lily named the cat after her BFF before we realized
it was not a female. The name just stuck.

Mama Dot with Evie. I am so grateful that she met my two girls.
She loved them, but "peapod" held a special place in her heart.

Mama Dot with Lucy Kate. We are so, so blessed that she
had the opportunity to meet her. God's timing is so good.
She stayed with my mom for the last month of her life, and she
had precious time to just hold and rock LK. They both loved it.

I love this picture. A sweet new baby at the beginning of life,
and my sweet grandmother closer to the end.
"..The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away;
blessed be the name of the LORD" Job 1:21

This picture is so tiny that you probably won't be able to see it.
I cannot figure out how to make it bigger. But I just love this
shot of Anna and Mama Dot. I think it says so much about her.


  1. Such a sweet post. Love all the pictures of Mama Dot. We are continuing to pray for y'all.

  2. What a great blog tribute to your precious grandmother! I am blessed to have gotten the opportunity to meet her several times and my heart is so glad that she got to meet and enjoy all 3 of y'alls beautiful girls!

  3. Beautiful, sweet post, Corrie. What a legacy she has left with all of you! Praying for God's comfort and peace in the days to come as you honor and remember your grandmother!

  4. When it came to giving, Dot was a Saint. She always was concerned about others before herself. She is a true inspiration and i miss her.
