I grew up on a farm in Saskatchewan. On either side of our front steps were two big peony bushes. They were so big and beautiful! Peonies will forever remind me of my Mom and hold a special place in my heart. Mom always had gorgeous flower beds. She taught me how to garden and let me ‘help’ with her flower beds, even though I probably wasn’t very helpful. I liked to water them but then would get distracted digging in the dirt and filling cups with worms or making mud pies. She always let me help anyways.She’s taught me kindness, patience and generosity. She’s been an incredible example of a loving mother and friend and has supported me no matter what. I’ve learned so much from my Mom I could write a book about it. I’m forever grateful for all the memories I’ve had with her and all that’s still to come.
