After their closing, Mama Minnie didn’t retire. She loves to help others and inquired one day about being a greeter at Kroger. We got on the computer one Saturday and she was called for an interview the next week. Kroger hired her as a florist. She had lots of experience with silk flowers (She still does wedding & Christmas decors) and now she is working with live flowers and has loyal customers. Look at God! You are never too old to learn. Mama Minnie still finds time to visit the nursing home, assist in our church feeding ministry and take care of everyone else. She tells me jokingly, I’m not made out of what she is made out of. (I can't keep up with her lol) It is my prayer that she makes it over 100.
I love to write poetry in my past time. This poem is included in the inside of her card. I want to give her the roses while she lives.
M other you are a blessing and I’m thankful to God for letting you see 75 in good health
A nd the abundance of joy from family, friends and faith in Him is the greatest wealth
M any memories are fond and dear to my heart growing up into the young lady that I am
A nd even when your answer was no I knew it was only because you care; you’re sweet as a lamb
M any talents I’ve inherited from you and I’m grateful for your gift of creativity
I will always refer to one of your favorite scriptures I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me
N o one can replace you Mama Minnie and I cherish our quality time each week
N urturing, timeliness, and spirit-filled are just some of the qualities that make you unique
I just want you to continue to let your light so shine and stay active as you are
E mbrace the love within. Know that I appreciate you and you will always be my Shining Star.
