If it's Mother's  Day Saturday, then  typically you would see me  at the greenhouse  buying  scads of  annuals  and geraniums  to plant  in momma's garden!

This was   the last Mother's Day  I celebrated with  momma  at  her  house in 2011..  She was  89...
This was  the last time Mom and Dad   ate around our table...  in 2012.

it was    July and we were  celebrating  Dad's and  my  birthdays..Momma  fell and   broke  a vertebra in her back in November that year and   they moved into  assisted living  for a year,  then     on  into nursing homes   the year following...  Dad  passed in December  of  2013,  and  Mother this past December..  at  age  94 and 91  respectively.   It was  a  very difficult 3 years  for  us all.  It is   so difficult to see your loving parents  suffer  for so long....  slip into  such a  devastating  decline.
They celebrated their 70th  wedding anniversary  while  in  the nursing home.  Their's was a match made in heaven,, and to heaven  they have  now  have  returned!  I   love  and miss you, both!
Happy Pink Saturday....   visit  Beverly    at How Sweet the Sound.


  1. That is a truly wonderful story--70 years WOW and still sweethearts. Your Mom was so pretty. My Mama is 88 and has had 3 bad falls--she is still doing OK.

  2. What a great tribute to your parents. I lost mine very young. You were fortunate in some ways to have had them so long.


Your comments are a huge blessing and encouragement to me~
