IF - Memories (2)

In that year, mom and I planted some sunflowers in our limited back yard area for the very first time. It grown so tall and it brighten up the whole yard, we both so excited seeing the flowers grow and blossom, we sat and chat for a long time while we enjoying looking at the sunflowers... and that year, mom passed away.....

Now, I plant sunflowers with my boy every summer in memory of my mom...

This is very meaningful to me. I miss my mom every September....especially tonite. She used to grow sunflowers, too. I see them and I think of her.
