Happy Memorial Day!

We who are left how shall we look again
Happily on the sun or feel the rain
Without remembering how they who went
Ungrudgingly and spent their lives for us
Loved, too, the sun and rain?

-- Wilfred Wilson Gibson

What a beautiful picture of my favorite flower! My gardenias are blooming now and I'm just relishing in their sweet fragrance. However, we will be moving to a new home soon, and I will be without their fragrance. Not for long though! I see some planting in my future!

My mom's favorite flower as well. We can grow them in Florida, which is exciting. Thanks for your post.

As I read the post, I thought of how hard the earthly goodbyes are...but think of how wonderful the heavenly hellos will be.
