BACKGROUND:

This box was created as a seasonal box which is to be available for a short period of time each year.

It will be placed in its intended seasonably location each year in late April. Check the listing on Atlas Quest to determine if it is currently available.

The general purpose of the box is to honor all mothers, but more specifically to memorialize my own mother who was known by many of her closest friends simply as “Dixie”

Life brings us many joys and celebrations, but also some heartaches and disappointment along the way.

We go through a period of mourning when someone close passes on, then we pick ourselves up and move on. I am old enough that I have seen many friends and loved ones go. However I find that the one death that I have never fully recovered from was that of my mother. Losing your mother leaves a void that nothing else can ever fill, a broken link and special bond that can never be repaired or replaced.

My mom was truly a sweet and gentile person who endured many hardships without complaint after being orphaned at an early age. She passed away on the 17th day of August 1995. Nearly 15 years latter I still miss her wit, wisdom, council, understanding, and love. Someday we will hold each other again!!

What is a Mom?

A mom is one of God's best gifts,
Someone to treasure all life through,
She's caring and loving,
Thoughtful and true,
Someone who is always a special part of your life,
Someone who holds a prime place in your heart,
She's a mentor, a confident and also a friend,
Someone on whose love you can depend.
A mom always has your best interests at heart,
She's someone so dear and so good,
She's a blessing, she's a gift,
She's a treasure like no other,
She's someone that is truly wonderful.
Wherever you go, and whatever you do,
A mom’s love will always see you through,
A mom is truly invaluable,
Indispensable and unforgettable.
I wouldn't want anyone but her,
And that's why I'm so grateful,
that God picked her for me.
