Mother's Day

Another Mother's Day has come and gone, and I miss my wonderful mom every day. Since she died when she was only 52, we lost many years together; but I am grateful for the years we did have. And all the wonderful memories.

Though a bit reflective, I always manage to have a nice Mother's Day as I am celebrated by my own wonderful daughter. This year was no exception. A fabulous herb kit
 from Smith and Hawken arrived in Thursday's mail. The perfect gift for a gardener! I eagerly filled the pots with soil and sowed the seeds. Then under the grow light the pots went to begin their journey to full-grown plants.

On the day itself, I received a phone call, the next best thing to being together. In fact, as we jumped from topic to topic, it was just like we were right across the table from one another enjoying a tasty brunch.

Lucky me.


  1. yes, lucky you! I love Smith & Hawken! What a lovely present...and it will just keep on giving! Your mom left this earth way too early! What a gorgeous photo of her!

  2. That is a sweet photo of your Mother : ) I know she is still with you in spirit.
    Your daughter is so thoughtful. The herb garden is such a useful and fun gift. Basil, mint and chives will be used a lot I'm sure. And it's so nice that your love bridges the miles between you both.
    Happy belated Mother's Day to you!

  3. Wonderful photo of your mother.


Please leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from you.
