This is a picture of my mother, Lebertis Knight Manees Wright, with HER mother, my grandmother, Annie McDonald Knight.
My book FOLLOW YOUR HEART, my Christian romance, is dedicated to my mother because she was for many years a Sunday School teacher and because, as the dedication states, she was “my first–and best–Bible teacher.”
My book ALL THE WAY HOME is dedicated to my grandmother because the heroine in the book is raising a grandchild alone.
This is my first Mother’s Day without my mother. I miss my Mom, but the thought just occurred to me that she can be with her mother, together again, this Mother’s Day.
I’ll wear a white flower this year for the first time, but I’ll wear it with pride. God gave me one of the best mothers anyone could ever want, and I had her with me for over 60 years. And her spirit is with me always.
Happy Mother’s Day to Moms Everywhere!
