Somber kinda day

Today David and I went to the funeral of a good friend's mother. March is a bitter sweet month really when I think about. Pam and I celebrated our birthdays which was fun and happy and now we celebrate the life of someone's mother who has passed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Flaherty Family in their time of sorrow.

It was 5 years ago today that we lost David's mother. There's not a day I don't think about her. She loved this time of year, well she loved every day of the year to be honest. She always loved how all the Bradford pear trees bloomed down Cypresswood and the flower petals would look like snow when they blew off the trees and the street would turn white with all the petals. When the Bradford pear tree at the new house bloomed it immediately made me think of Thelma. She was one special lady.


Until Next Blog.......
And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
  Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.

I know I commented on this but I can't 'see' it.

I enjoyed your loving memories of a wonderful lady. No wonder you love David so much! He had a great mom!
