Remember me

I love fresh flowers...always have. Granny, on the other hand, was a more practical soul. So I figured she would find it only practical for me to take some of the flowers from her service home to enjoy. Her casket spray was full of these beautiful pink roses. I enjoyed them so much...and still am...only now they are hanging to dry. I am planning to put the dried buds in a glass jar in my bedroom. A beautiful way to remind myself of the beautiful woman Granny was!

Gerbera of my favorites...
I will remember...but not because of beautiful flowers or a fancy service...but because of the simple, wonderful, self-sacrificing, beautiful woman who spent her life loving her family and her God!
