Bittersweet Mother's Day

DSC_0936I was awoken this Mother's Day with a call at 7:00 am that a beloved family friend was no longer with us.  Joyce, was like a mother to me and to so many.  As the shock overwhelmed me, I flooded with memories of her and how she took care of so many daughters.   How fitting it is that  she would leave us on her day. Today, I am starting a new tradition by making a spring posie in her honor.
