It's beautiful today, sunny and 70 degrees...you couldn't ask for a more lovely Mother's Day! I love a fresh breeze through the house so naturally we have all of the windows open. As I passed by the kitchen window I smelled a waft of lilac on the breeze. It amazes me how an aroma can transport me so instantly back in time to my childhood. Growing up we had two big common lilac shrubs in the front yard. I always loved the smell of the flowers and remember butchering those shrubs as I cut flowers to take to my mom...thank goodness lilacs are very forgiving of a little girl with scissors! I would drag branches of flowers into the house, ants and all and give them to my mom. She never complained about the bugs and would lovingly put my bouquet into a vase.
She remains a shining light in my life and I love her beyond words. Thank you, Mom...for your patience, compassion and love.
