It is my mom’s birthday, the second one we have marked since she passed away last year and for her birthday I am going to post March’s tree. It is not a full blown tree but a few branches. It is a promise of what is coming as the buds begin to swell and burst open.
My mom was a creature of spring she was born in the spring and loved everything about it. The trees awakening, the anticipation of her hummingbirds returning, the flowers, buttercups, irises, hyacinths and crocuses, all brought her joy and delight. As I reflect on the life my mom lived and the lessons she taught me I can only hope to live my life as unselfishly as she did. Spring has arrived and with it the joy of my mom is reflected. I hope today you too are reminded life is beautiful and live with anticipation.
