Playing catch up here. Have so much to share, but I need to go back to February first. This photo is from a little Catholic church in Bon Secour, AL. Mom wasn't Catholic but I love this shot.

On mom's birthday, February 16, I bought some pretty lilies and tied them to a palm from the yard and let them float down river in memory of her. Of course, when I tossed the bouquet in, the flowers went face down. I had to giggle. That's what mom would have done, probably with a choice word or two. I sat and watched them float until they were out of sight.

Miss her so much.

Heartwarming Rosa. Mary is the model for us all. Your mom no doubt would have appreciated that while her flowers giggled and gurgled as they floated past.

Oh, Rosie-posey. My heart kind of breaks when I read this -- my mom's birthday is tomorrow -- have a post ready on it. 34 years -- they are all bittersweet, but none were so hard as that first year, when every holiday was new.

Wish I could reach across the states and hug you and you could tell me Lillie Sue stories and we'd laugh at the lilies. Hugs.

You'll always miss her sweetie, but it does become more of a dull ache, over time. I think it is wonderful that you have so many happy memories of your mom.

What a lovely idea this is.
