Surprise Flowers For Meredith & An Honor From Shauna




July 4th weekend, we went to East Texas to have dinner and fireworks with my brother and his wife. He lives in the house where we grew up, the house Mother and Dad built in the 1930s. It has been remodeled several times and the small board house is now a larger bricked one. Meredith is buried in the cemetery at "home" right next to my maternal grandmother. I take her new artificial flowers when I go. This time, there was a surprise at her grave - a small nosegay of fresh orange and green blossoms. There was one like it for my great nephew who is buried next to her. The green flowers were tiny, exotic cymbidian orchids. I was thrilled that someone remembered Meredith & Joshua and asked all the family members who had placed the flowers. No one in our family did and the benefactor remains a mystery. I am very thankful to this person who lifted a mother's heart.

The first picture above was made by Shauna who has the blog "Pinwheels From Heaven." Shauna has made pinwheel and balloon pictures for Meredith that I need to post soon. She honored me by mentioning my name in her blog with the lamb picture. Shauna, I LOVE lambs!They remind me of innocence and sweetness, of Jesus, the Lamb of God and the Great Shepherd. Thank you for associating my name with a lamb!

The angel picture reminds me of our girls in Heaven - Meredith and Shauna's babies Janessa and Hope. Someday we will get to see and hold our babies.

Hello, thank you so much for your comment on my blog the other day. I am just taking a peak through your blog now. You prove to me that a mother's love never ends, no matter how many years have passed since you've seen your child. I can not imagine that many years without my child. It is a whole life time for me (I am about the same age as your daugher would be). It has been six years since my daughter passed away and I already feel although that has been long enough.

If you so desire, please feel free to check out Patches' blog. http://patchesthebear.blogspot.com . If you don't know who Patches is, he is a tiny bear who visits bereaved parents of infants. I'm sure he would love to come visit you and learn more about Meredith.

Thanks again for your comment and come again soon!

That is so wonderful about the flowers. You know, someone kept leaving my mom flowers too and I never found out who it was. Perhaps some angels looking out for our grieving hearts? :)
