Reply to "Birthday"

It's just me, again. Ya know what I do to celebrate my Moms birthday? Her and I had this 'thing' going every year for her special day where I bought her a red rose for each year of life that she had given me, and she in turn would give me a dirty look and say,' Diane, why are you wasting money on all these roses' Her birthday was 12- 1, so it could get a lil expensive. And I in turn would tell her that each rose was for each year that she loved me and took care of me. So if the roses were a waste, so was I. She would give me one of those cute lil grins and alwasy come to me and give me a hug and kiss. Well, know instead of handing her the roses, I leave one at her grave, representing how many years I am missing her. This year it will be 4 red roses. And its funny but, after I talk to her at the gravesight, I still hear her saying, Diane, I told you not to waste your money. I now know how very much you loved me...
In any case, maybe you can have the lil one look at pictures of gram and tell them stories about her. Memories are just ideas that have already happened.
