I am thankful for the sunflowers.
My mum would make us her famous spaghetti casserole or my husband’s favourite chicken a la king.
I would stop on the way home from work to pick up some ice cream for her.
During the pandemic she and I planted the entire perennial garden!
It was such a rare and wonderful opportunity to be able to work this way with my mother.
I mentioned that I loved pink roses so she ordered a very fancy pink rose bush
and every morning we would look to see if there were any blossoms.
She would text me and say, “Kara, there’s another blossom on your rose bush.”
We planted sunflowers in the front garden beds and they grew as tall as her bedroom window!
I will always be grateful for the two years we got to live so close together.
