Just before we had given her a gardenia corsage. She cried oh so softly as she recalled a time when my Dad bought her one while they were in New York City 50 years ago. She delighted in the aroma and I could feel her memories so alive. Our meal was so lovely, so kind and loving. I felt overwhelmed with the gifts of love around us and with in us - almost too much to absorb in the best of ways.
As we drove home a sun shower popped up - and my Mom said "after a Spring rain rainbows appear" And within seconds, right before us appeared the most beautiful rainbow of hues of lavender, mint green, blue, yellow, pink - it was divine. We were in awe and kept thanking our God for the natural gift of a rainbow.
Our day together was so wonderful - "I love you Mom"
Love, Gail peace.......
