April 6th, . . . two years since Mom passed. I miss her so much. Today I will light a candle, have a cup of tea, and think of her. Lemon Balm will be appropriate. She always loved that tea, plus it's a wonderful and tasty herb tea that helps relax the nervous system. If you have a moment, please share some fond memories you have of her below in the "comments section". Her memory lives on inside us.
Remembering Mom, . . .
There are so many memories, here are a few, . . .
Listening to her heart beat as she rocked me when I was a child.
The firm grip she held on my arm when she pulled me away from something I should not be doing.
Telling me about the "birds and the bees" and what it was to become a woman.
Fixing me herbal concoctions for my health and well being.
Catching my tears when I would cry about something.
Using spit to clean the dirt off from my cheek (she still attempted to do this even as I became an adult!).
Walking with her and her telling me what herbs were what.
Picking plants with her and making medicine.
Staying up late, studying for tests and writing essays with her help.
Cooking with her and eating her delicious food.
The trips, the car rides, the long plane flights, the world we saw together.
Gossiping on the phone.
And some memories in photos, if you have any to add, please forward them to me via email and I will include them, . . .
Greece! Oh what feasts we had!
More feasting, and this one cooked by Mom of course, she was an amazing cook!
More adventures! We travelled all over the world together.
My baby shower for Serafin.
X-mas time, her favorite holiday.
Funny Faces (my mom was never too shy when it came to being a goof)
On the front lawn with my greek yaya.
Feeling the energy in a stone circle with Dad.
When Paul and I were little.
