My mother was born on May 5th and she died on May 15th. Although she has been gone for 15 years, I miss her as if it were yesterday, especially around Mother's Day.
I don't cry anymore. Instead, I think of all the fun and laughs we had. I look at old photos and remember what a great mother and grandmother she was, and am happy that she lived to see the birth of her first great grandchild.
A four generation picture is our family treasure.
A hat tip to favepeep for reminding me to pause, reflect and share a story or two with my children about my wonderful mom.
The gardenia was her favourite flower. I took this picture last week in Florida and thought of her.
Happy Mother's Day.
