Looking around  my garden I am reminded of the one thing I know for sure...Life goes on.

Blooming flowers and greenery remind me that life is precious and life is always being renewed.

 Flowers remind me of mom and her love of gardening, and how much I love and miss her.

Happy memories that make me smile and laugh and goes on.

Trees are a reminder of the roots my parents gave me, the foundation of all that I am.

A reminder to remember to love and to live.

Thank you all for your kind comments and emails  during these trying times.  I'm doing okay. Back soon, love to you all.
