Making Sad Happy


Everyone asked me how I was doing with my first Mother's day without my mom. I was sad and I do miss her but I turned sad into happy by doing something to honor her memory. Steve and I planted this rose topiary. It was just perfect because she wanted a rose garden and we never got around to planting one while she was alive. 



This was planted on Mother's Day, May 8, 2011


One week later - May 15, 2011

In the Fall, we will have it planted in a permanent location to be determined...

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.

I agree. Beautiful idea. I know her smile is the sunshine showering down upon it, making it grow and thrive. Bless you. I cannot even imagine the pain from your loss...
