A nice, warm hearted story - and a writer who knows she is blessed with both mother and daughter at her side. A little vine of envy comes to this she is not that blessed. (smile) Very well written.
Very nice. Touching without being sappy at all. My grandmother was a wonderful, godly woman whom I dearly loved. She's been gone almost 10 years now, and I miss her. My kids' grandmother lives half a continent away (the other died before they could ever know her.) It is wonderful how you appreciate what you have, and are able to express it so well.
I love this entry so much! Definitely one of my faves this week (and I've read a LOT of them!). "...cares enough about character to live it in her own life and expect it from mine" - this sentence is priceless to me. The whole thing is priceless. I can relate to all of it, and I'm so glad you've put it into words.
"God did not give me a green thumb, but he gave me a green mind." Love this line. It is one that I can use whenever I look at my dying plants. Like you, I am a loss at plants, but the learning, reading, growing is very much a part of me.
This is was so real & straight from the heart! I can relate to not having a "green thumb", too.
