Happy Mother's Day Mom
My mother would always tell the story of going to church on Mother's Day when she was a child and getting a carnation. White carnations would be given to the children who had lost their mother and pink carnations would be given to the children who still had their mother. She would tell us how glad she was that she had a pink carnation and how sorry she felt for the children who had white carnations and I guess we were being give a push to say how grateful we were to have our mother with us. I'm not sure we took the hint and responded they way she wanted but I do know that we were glad to have her.
Miss you Mom and wish I had a pink carnation for sure.
