Today would have been my mother's 64th birthday, she passed away August of last year. I miss her so much.
wonderful story, you write with such skill and it was well crafted ....
enjoyed it so much....thanks
My Mom is still alive albeit in her 80's. Every time I go to her house I take, with her permission, something that she has used. I have canning jars, her ladle, her cast iron Dutch oven just to name a few things. I use them regularly and bless my Mom each time. I'm hoping my kids will feel the same about some of the things I've used.
PLANT A LIVING MEMORIAL:
I loved the story and the lady's spirit! I too swim in my backyard pond and grow my own veggies. When my sister passed away with breast cancer, I had two different friends bring me two different trees to plant as living memorials to honor her. One was a Pink dogwood tree, my sister raised show dogs and now my friend that gave me the tree, sadly also of breast Cancer,has passed,it stands to honor them both. A tree will long out last a spray of funeral flowers that wilt at a graveside.
Nice story! My mother passed this month 4 years ago in CT. Her cat was added to our family which makes it feel like part of my mom is still with me. I also dug up a few of her perennial flowers before her home was sold. Watching them now grow in my own flower garden in Maine also keeps my loving memories alive of both my mother and childhood home.
Interesting! I hope that everyone had a happy Labor Day! That goes for last year and all the oter years that Ive missed. I like to wear a jacket that my late sister had. It helps me onor er memory.
What a beautiful story. I remember my son every day. He passed away with cancer at age 39 on March 31, 2012. When I visited him in the hospice home there were beautiful trees full of blossoms outside the window. He was too weak to see them . He knew I love trees and he always bought me one for my birthday. He passed away at dawn on the 4th day of staying in the home. I planted a weeping cherry tree in my front yard in memory of him.
