Do you think of loved ones while gardening?

17 years ago

Today is hitting me quite hard and the tears just won't stop coming. I am working out in the garden today which is usually so therapeutic. I have some flowers actually blooming and it isn't even May yet!

I cannot stop thinking about my father who passed away last September (he was only 62 and it wasn't at all expected). I am having such a hard time because he always would stop his pickup truck and chat with me for a few minutes if I was out in the garden when he was driving by. I didn't realize how much I enjoyed and cherished those moments until this year. Every time a car or truck goes by I look up to see if it is him.

Today being outside with the roses is just breaking my heart. So here I am back inside on the computer wasting away a nice sunny day.
