|17th Birthday in 1979-dressed as little girls|
|This is the rough draft of the letter|
|May 1980, Me & Momma at Lu's House|
This was July 1982 in Medlline, South America. It was a tour that Momma directed to visit our Mission fields. She is the lady in the middle of the picture with the White jacket (that she made) and I am beside her in the red dress (that she made)...I got off the plane and our friends ASKED where I was...I blended in WELL with the South Americans...LOL...
I am THANKFUL for the GOOD that FAR outweighed the bad. I am THANKFUL that she cared enough to NEVER stop trying to make me a BETTER Person. I am THANKFUL for the creativity that she taught me. I am MOST THANKFUL that she taught me that God gives EACH of us GIFTS and that we MUST be willing to use them for HIS GLORY…I hope that I make GOD Smile and I HOPE that Mother is proud of me…BUT I don’t know if I will ever stop WISHING that I could have been a better daughter for HER than what I was…BUT I will do my BEST to be the DAUGHTER she is STILL proud to call “her baby”…I LOVE ya, Momma and thank you for LOVING me…Blessings to YOU…~charlotte ♥
