Dear Grandma ~ A Tribute to Mom with Flowers

Hello Dear Readers!

Happy Monday and

Happy Monday Morning Blooms Day!

It’s a  most beautiful Monday, when I and

my wonderful flower loving friends,

Lidy, Mary and Pam,

share our love for flowers,

every 1st and 3rd Monday

of the month, hoping to bring some of

that love to you for inspiration.

Today we pay tribute to Mothers.

Mother’s Day can certainly be both

joyous and bittersweet as we celebrate

our Mothers in person or in our hearts.

Today I bring you,

My letter to the Grandmother I never met.

A Mother’s Day Letter, A Tribute to My Mom with Balsam Hill

Years ago, as Mother’s Day was approaching,

I was thinking about my Grandmother . . . my mother’s mother.

I never met her. She passed away when my mom was just 16 years old.

I have always dreamed about how it would be like, to have spent time with her,

to have her tell me stories of my mom, when she was a young girl.

So I sat down one day and wrote her a letter.

A Mother’s Day letter, a tribute to my mom.

Happy Mother’s Day ~ Beautiful Irises from the Garden

Happy Mother’s Day!

I just wanted to wish you wonderful moms out there a most wonderful Mother’s Day.

Unfortunately, I am unable to be with my mom today, but hope to see her soon!

I admire her never ending positive attitude on life,

never wanting for much . . . just the company of her family

and just glad to be alive and rise early each day to see the sun rise.

I wish I had just a smidgen of her amazing positive and happy attitude.
