Fall Nights, Memory Lanes.

Chilly nights and tie die skies.

There is something about this season that makes me feel so calm inside.

Nights like these makes me remember the times I had with my biological mother.


There was something about the quietness of our conversations...

For some reason she would always whisper while she talked and tell me the sweetest secrets and the most amazing stories.


I remember this one especially, like it were yesterday.
"Momma Sib, what is that stuff in your eyes when you get sleepy?" Well baby, its sleepy dust and when it's time to go to bed the Sleep Angel comes and sprinkles it on your eyes, so that you can get a good nights rest and have sweet dreams." "Oh, well its very itchy." She laughed.

Her laugh was intoxicating actually... it could brighten a room, make you smile, even make you laugh right back.

I miss her so much these days.

I know she is watching over my family. Laughing her hardest at Nicholas and smiling her biggest smiles at Davony. Some how I know she's proud of me. Proud of the woman, wife and most of all the mother I have become. Her life was a lesson to me. Without a doubt in my life I wouldn't be the person I am today if it wasn't for her. Take a few minutes today and please remind your mother just how amazing she is.

Have a great Wednesday ya'll!

What a beautiful story... you say your biological mother... were you adopted? I was adopted when I was a baby, so I have never met my biological mother. I don't even know her name. Someday I would love to find her...
But as for thanking my mom, that I should do.... And I will never rub the sleep out of my eyes again without thinking of your sweet story...
