Just a little bit about Rosie


My mother dearest....Rosie...I love my mother. I remember growing up I would get home from school and she would be on the phone praying with a friend. Or I would get home from school and she would be making a meal for someone who was sick. She sacrificed and did daycare in her home so she could be home when we all got back from school. When I would be sick, she would make me a bed on the couch with sheets, seven up, crackers, and a pillow. My mom would allow us to have fiends over anytime we wanted. Our house was alaways the "hangout" house. I remember my mom praying all the time, I would hear her praying in her room. It was and is still so important to my mom to make things so special. Like my wedding, my baby shower, exc. She would always praise me in school when I would get "C's". My friends loved Rosie and would often tell her things that I didn't even know about. Now that I am becoming a mother, there are many things I want to emulate from my mother. Nosie Rosie is an incredible mother and will be an incredible grandmother to my little precious baby.

you just love her because you found someone who is actually shorter than you! Just kidding...I can only pray that I am half of the mom that we were blessed to have.

the whole couch and crackers is so true! Even this past christmas break when I hurt my finger, she and dadd sat on the couch with me, an icepack and watched my favorite movie with hot chocolate to make me feel better! It was so special!

I love Rosie!! She was a great second mom to me! I remember when I got mono my freshman year of college and your mom called me and told me I needed to eat beans and things with iron to get better! She was so sweet!

She also forgave me for breaking her nutcracker! What a woman of grace & forgiveness! :)
