Pink Roses for Mother's Day


Roses were my mothers' favourite flower, especially pink ones.


Her 82nd birthday would have been Monday,
most years Mother's Day and her Birthday were celebrated together.
I only have wonderful memories left as she passed away over a decade ago.
These pink roses are for my Mom.

I am joining the parties at

How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday

and

Little Red House for Mosaic Monday

Happy
Mother's
Day.

Roses are my favorite flower and if I make it until August, I will be 82. Life is much too short, we all need to enjoy it every day to the fullest.

Beautiful roses and a lovely tribute to your mother. I needed to read this today. I was feeling sorry for myself because I didn't get to be with my mother on Mother's Day this year. There was a great deal of flooding in Western Kentucky and the only way I could have gotten to my parents house would have been by boat. I won't forget that I am fortunate to still have my mother. Thank you for the reminder.

The day will never pass without us thinking of our own Mothers & what they meant to us, huh? Doubly true in your case, with her birthday so close, too.
Beautiful roses are a fitting tribute to your Mom, Jen. Well done!

Mega Hugs,
Rett
