Pink Camellias After The Rain, And Remembrance
Where there had been about three blooms just a few days ago, there were now many, many more.
I wanted to take some pictures of them, so I went and got my phone:
I'd be crazy NOT to hope for that, at this point.
We need rain, and we need lots of snow in the high country.
I glanced at the date on the phone, too (remember - this was yesterday), and I thought to myself "February 26th...? February 26th...
....oh, yes; I remember the significance of that date.
Of course, I do.
It was seventeen years ago on this date that Mother passed away."
She had breast cancer.
And the appointment I had gone to yesterday morning?
My annual mammogram.
I had not even realized it when I made the appointment.
And it occurred to me that it was rather appropriate that I should have gone and had that done on the anniversary of such a somber occasion.
Thus, my inspiration for today's post of pink camellias and the rain.
Remember to enjoy and appreciate the flowers, and the rainy days.
Because you may not always have them, you know?
