End of Winter, Beginning of Spring

It is the end of winter here on the mountain and the beginning of spring, daffodils blooming, trees budding out and life goes on.
Mom lost another good friend this week, C. had struggled and fought the good fight for 3 years against that insidious disease, cancer. Mom loves a poem Dad wrote long ago; "The Spring I didn't see is the one I miss the most." C. was a lover of the outdoors, beautiful flowers and took joy in life. She will be greatly missed.
Life goes on, Mom and Dad are going to a Celtic Fair tomorrow and are going by the garden center to buy mountain laurel to plant as a memorial.

Mountain Laurel is a lovely tribute to your Mama's friend. Our condolences on the loss of C., but be comforted knowing that her Spring is beginning, too.

It's getting warmer here now and Mom took her morning coffee to the screened porch. She thought of the last time, about this time last year, that C was able to come over for a visit. She and Mom sat out there and drank camomile tea and we kitties joined them. It was one of those perfect spring days...
Thank you kitty friends for your kind thoughts.
Special purrs, GJ and Momcat
