Today is my mother's birthday, June 3rd. I miss her so much too. I wonder what she's doing in heaven today? I keep seeing her smiling face with pretty red lipstick she always loved to wear, her twinkling teal/blue eyes and beautiful red roses. I guess I associate her birthday with all of Grandma's beautiful red roses at our shore house - June being rose month. Roses are also the June birthday flower.
Roses happen to be my favorite flower, especially the red ones, although I love them all.
I always liked that Mom and I shared the same birthday month.
I thought she told me I was born on Father's day... at 4:42 in the afternoon. But I just checked a calendar for that year and I was born that Saturday. And I do recall she said I was born on a Saturday. So ...I must've misunderstood.
Anyway, we have a red rose bush that is growing nicely. It is prolific with roses far into the summer. That surprised me because I thought they die off in June. Roses are so pretty and not only do I delight in this rose bush's beauty, but seeing the pretty red roses evokes some special memories from over the years. I always feel good when I see red roses. :)
Happy Birthday Mom. :)
