It's been almost 7yrs since my mother passed away. That was 3 years after my grandmother and 4 years before my sister died. These 3 angels were so important to me and directly affected who I became as a mother, wife, sister, friend and co-worker. This Mother's Day I decided to not be sad. I would still miss them terribly, as I do every day, but I was going to enjoy spending some quality time with my husband and kids and celebrate the living.
I bought a bouquet of the favorite flower of each one of them, my Mom (Estela) - Easter Lilies, my grandmother (Mama Chayo) - Sunflowers and my sister (Mary) - Lavender/purple flowers ;)
