Fingerprint Friday

Fingerprint Friday is the brainchild of Beki at The Rusted Chain. I love the idea of looking for God's fingerprint in our lives so I've decided to make this a regular post.

Fingerprint Friday is based on these words from the beautiful song by Steven Curtis Chapman:

I can see the fingerprints of god
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of god
And I know its true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of god

This week my fingerprint is my mom. I look back on my relationship with my mom and I see how God planned our lives perfectly in making me her daughter and the way she and my dad raised me.

Mom passed away in 2007 so this will be our 5th Mother's Day without her here to celebrate. There's a line in the Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan movie You've Got Mail where Meg's character says, "I missing my mother so much it hurts to breath." Even after five years I have those moments. Thankfully, I have many happy memories to get me through.

My mother was the most amazing woman and I am so very grateful for every minute I had with her.
