My Christmas cactus has decided it's time to bloom.

I bought this plant last December.  I had bought one for my Mom, to take to her in the hospital, and I thought it was so pretty I went back and bought one for myself.

The one I gave my Mom disappeared, somewhere between the hospital and the nursing home and the uproar of the last few days before she died.  But I've still got this one, and now that it's blooming, I think of her when I look at it.

Hard to believe it's been almost a year.

Great lighting and a really pretty photo.

I lost my mom 5 weeks ago. It's funny what trips the memory circuits.

Kris, I'm so sorry for your loss. This must be an awfully hard time for you.

Thanks - I know you walked this path recently yourself, so I really appreciate the kind thoughts. I suspect this first year is going to be a series of "this is the first Thanksgiving* without her."

It's me - Kris.

Kris, sometimes I dream of my mom, how she was before the Alzheimer's, and it's the absolute best. Very comforting. Remember the good stuff.
