I have decided to honor my mother's memory this year by planting a Forget-Me-Not in my garden. Each time I see it I can think of the mother of my childhood and the day long ago when she planted the same flower in her garden-a gift from me. I can think of all the gifts she gave me over the years and of the mother she became in later life. I can remember her as she was.
What ways have you found to cope with the holidays that remind us so much of our loss?
Blogging has helped me to cope day to day but this holiday is very difficult for me-my first as a motherless child.
