I have been thinking about my mom a lot this week. She passed away in May of this year, and the closer we get to Christmas the more I think about her. She always loved Christmas. She always enjoyed yellow flowers too. (When she passed away, I received the flowers & card pictured above from friends.) I am thankful that she loved me, and did her best in raising me. I wish I could call her and talk to her right now...but, instead I will be thankful that she is no longer suffering.
