We had an impromptu picnic at the Duck Park last night after school. It was such a glorious night and Robbie asked if we'd like to join her and her boys at the park. We packed a picnic for the kids and grabbed the bag of PB&J crusts for the ducks and headed over. The boys were beyond excited and chased the seagulls and picked "wishing flowers" (aka dandelions gone to seed) and made secret prayers before blowing them in the breeze.
This is what I wish for them to remember on a gray and gloomy day long after I'm gone. The memories of my mother are with me always.
