Hard to believe this post was made 7 years ago and it's been 15 years since Mom passed away. I still think about her every day. Happy Mothers day to all chordie Moms.
I last spoke to my mother on Mother's Day 1996. She passed suddenly the following Wednesday morning. Like you, I still think of her every day. I still want to pick up the phone and call her. I can only imagine how my children would have benefited from knowing her. But, even when it breaks our hearts the world unravels as it must.
My wife is not a big believer in Mother's Day. Our usual thing is for us to go to a nursery and buy some landscaping plants that I put in. I'm a terrible landscaper, and my wife knows less about plants than I do, so it's always an adventure. We get a big kick out of seeing what plants grow where. We can never hope to understand why. We put shade plants in shady spots, and they die. We put sun plants in shady spots and they thrive. Vice versa. So now we just go by shape.
