Memorial Day Flowers For My Mother
(I had to put a filter on the photo, because I put the flowers in the fridge to keep them bright and some of them froze - I can't decide if it is morbid or hilarious, probably just what mom would expect from me)

I'm unsteady and off balance and can't quite get my feet underneath me. When I wake in the morning I feel it the most. An ache and a hunger that I don't quite yet understand how to soothe. I miss you mom.

Those flowers are so pretty. I wish I could have been there to visit Grandma's grave. I miss her too.

wow those flowers look so pretty...kind of funny how they froze:) I think grandma probablly laughed at that:) I was sad we couldn't make it to grandma's grave on memorial day...we were out of town. I am really missing Grandma too. It's still so strange to me that it really happened.
