Last year on this day, we started our seedlings indoors in her memory (we've sown them directly into the garden this year). Today, I thought I would share some of the bright and cheerful things I know she would have liked, and I hope you do too.
Blueberry buds (know what's crazy? I don't know if she liked blueberries or not!).
Carolina vetch (not a very pretty sounding name, but a delightful little flower)...
Simple dew drops on grass.
For any of you women/girls who have lost your mom (or know someone who has), Motherless Daughters by Hope Edelman is an excellent book (there are supplemental publications as well). Also, The Fall of Freddy The Leaf by Leo Buscaglia is one of my favorites for understanding the circle of life. And for those of you who have experienced this loss (or that of someone else) may your memories bring you peace...you are not alone.
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
