I made a flower arrangement to honor my mom at our wedding. She passed away in 1998. Sad thing is, my daddy just passed away a couple of weeks before the wedding. He was 92. Now, we aren't young, but I still wanted dad to meet my husband. We are in Texas and he lived in California.
I draw comfort from the fact that I had flown out to visit him in November. He knows I love him. I'm sure he always knew that, but it was good to hug him and tell him one more time.
I have loads of news and photos to share, it will be soon, I promise. Here's a photo of my parent's DIY arrangements. My dad's is on the left, and mom's is on the right:
