I lost my mother 15 years ago. I still miss her. I sure wish I could ask her questions I never thought to ask her, like, "How in the world did you keep your sanity with six children?" :)

She was beautiful and amazing...after all she raised six children. I'm in awe; I only had two - can't imagine having more. :)

She loved to garden - irises were a favorite flower. Her favorite color was blue. A blue iris would definitely be favored!
She loved the beach but didn't want to go when it was hot so we'd always go at Easter since the kids had a long weekend.
I loved to pop over there during the day and sit and chat with her. I asked her questions about young children but never thought to ask her about adult children. (I guess I thought she thought we were all just perfect - ha!)
I'll enjoy my time with my children this weekend and cherish each second of it.

But part of me will be missing my mom. If yours is still living, cherish the moments with her; if she's gone, cherish and hold onto the good memories. Until I see you, again Mom, I love you!
