I love my other precious Mama! Days after Mom in Saipan died, the Lord had already provided tickets for eight of us to make it there. We thought we would make it in time to say goodbye or help revive her in some way as her body was shutting down.
We were heartbroken that we couldn't make it in time, but trusted that there was a reason why God wanted us all to go. Before we flew out of the East Coast to Japan, we said goodbye to Mom and Dad White. Shortly after I saw Mama I hugged her and cried in her arms.
Then she said one of the most touching and painful things to me. She greeted me with a "Hello my beautiful daughter" in a whisper.
That was the greeting I always got when I called Mom Anicia in Saipan. She'd greet me with a hearty and excited, "Hello my beautiful first-born daughter!"
Though I miss Mom Anicia terribly, I'm so glad I still have a Mom. I love you Mama!
