Blossoming memories

Hi everyone,

My mom died in 2012 on August 15. On September 9, 2012 Neva Harrison would have been 100 years old.

A dear friend of ours, Ann Mericle, sent an orchid for the funeral. Every Saturday Sandy drops three ice cubes into the pot, which rests on a kitchen windowsill. From time to time exquisite blossoms burst forth.

Each time I think of my mother. And Sandy and I talk again about Ann’s loving gift.

We called her Mimi. She reminded us all of Auntie Mame.

Thanks again, Ann!
Thanks again, Mimi!

  1. The ‘Miracle’ gift. With each blossoming, love blooms anew- a reminder of the beauty, blessing and unforgettable wonder of each life.

      • David, Thanks for this reminder of the beauty in life and the beauty that rests inside us. Your mom was and still is amazing–look at the incredible son and daughter she raised. Blessings to you in this new year.

    • And blessings to you, dear Joy. We’ll start looking for more glimpses of your new life before much longer. Thank you for your kind words.

  2. David,
    So lovely in every way…one of the ways to make the loss of such a dear person less painful is to see all the evidence of her influence living on. As sappy as it sounds, a loving happy spirit passes along, sure as DNA….
