June 19th

I have exactly seventeen minutes to finish this post....it must be published on June 19th. Today is my mother's birthday. If she were still alive, she would be 58 years old today.
Having pondered for several days over what to write for her birthday, I'm blank. Completely blank. I could gush, but I won't. I could even write something that would make some of you laugh, but I'm tired and suspect I would exceed my time constraint.
I bought some flowers today to take to the cemetery, but I decided the heat is just too scorching and the flowers would hardly live through the noontime sun. So I'm keeping them. On my nightstand. So I can enjoy them. Myself.
And remember. Good times.
And plan. Good future.
And pray myself to sleep. Good Mom, Great God.

Hi Theia,
What a precious post. You were right to keep those flowers. That's what your Mom would have wanted! I know you miss her so much. She is looking down at you and is so very proud of the woman you have become!

You are right to keep them! You can look at them and remember her! And remember how much she loved flowers and could make any type of arrangment! Love you shay
