I wrote about my mom in the post below and I really felt like I forgot to include a very important aspect of her life...what she greatly valued and made her the type of person she was. My mom was a prayer warrior like you wouldn't believe! I found this paper 'For Others' among her things after she died. My mom had typed this many, many, many years ago - like when she was a teenager - so prayer has always been a very important part of her life. She actively interceded for others and I remember her going to early morning intercessory prayer at church. She also had a notebook with many names listed (mine included!) and she sincerely prayed that God would move in all of those situations. I think that's a great idea and I plan to use one of the lovely journals I've received to do that very thing. My mom certainly understood the power of prayer and I'm so glad she did!
