The last few weeks of December were unseasonably warm! It's hard to think about Christmas when it's 80 degrees and the air conditioner is on. The first week of January brought some cooler weather but I noticed something in my garden... The flowers I thought were dead had started reblooming!
I must confess, Christmas was difficult for me this year. I've always heard that the first holiday after losing a loved one can be hard. Now that I've experienced it, I know that is true! I missed Dad in so many ways, but I'm so thankful Mom got to spend time with us.
