Last week I shared pictures of cherry blossoms from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. This Mother’s Day I’m giving you tulips. This is my first Mother’s Day without Mom, Inc. I can’t give her flowers today, but that’s ok. I gave her plenty of flowers to celebrate Mother’s Day and I gave her still more flowers on ordinary days (her favorite to receive).
My mom and I enjoyed each other’s company. We liked to hang out together. The BBG was one of our many hang out spots. I tiptoed over to the tulips and took some pictures and took in a lot of lovely memories.
Today, I’ll be thinking of Mom; hanging out with those memories. I’ll tread softly through each one; not because they are fragile, but because they are so very precious to me. I’ll laugh a little. I’ll cry a little. I’ll be grateful. Because that’s what you do when you receive an amazing gift from a loved one.
