I want you to know dear friends that I'm still here and doing okay since my mom passed away on August 12th. In some ways it seems like an eternity since that day she left us. So much has happened in the past few weeks I've barely had time to think about the reality of things. I've been dealing with the settling of her estate and listing her house for sale. We received an offer on the house this afternoon. Oh... I know I should be grateful, but it's yet another bittersweet end of the way things were that I have to accept and get used to.
It's just all so sudden and... final... I guess is the word.
We needed to get away for a couple of days. So a short little trip to our favorite spot in Bayfield was in order. We were blessed with gorgeous weather. Lake Superior worked her magic and left wonder, peace and solitude for a still aching heart.
Enjoy some of the pics I took while walking through the gardens and walking trails along the Chequamegon Bay.
It gives one pause to see such beauty and displays of nature. Perhaps hope and faith in better days to come as well. Life goes on and keeping the memory alive of those we've loved and lost should be priority. My mom loved to garden above all else. Seeing the beautiful plants and ordering things from the seed catalogs gave her much joy.
I hope that come spring I can find some time to get back to my own gardens ( they are overgrown with weeds for the present) and carry on mom's love for seeing things grow.
Life is too short for putting things off. The important things.
Like watching the flowers dance in the sunlight!
