We remember.

 I've talked about her to both of them since they were born. This is the bouquet we picked to celebrate what would have been her birthday (with cake!). 

Now, he knows about her.
 He asks about her, talks about her.

Tells his sister all about her.

He says he loves her.

Some of the questions he asks are hard questions.  But my heart doesn't feel empty, it feels full.

My heart feels full because even though they haven't met her, he knows about "Grandma Debbie".  And sweet girl will know too someday. 
And they'll know about who my mother was was because she made me who I am today.  They'll know about her through me.  And for that, I am thankful.


  1. It's so important for them to learn about family.

  2. What a sweet way to remember your mom on her birthday. The bouquet is beautiful and I love how you put her photo in the middle of the blooms. It's great that you are telling them all about her!

  3. Wow! You look so much like her in that photo!
    Just lovely.
