DREAMTRAVELING PARTIE DEUX
Continuing on with the theme of Dreamtravel
I visited several more blogs and Flickr photos yesterday
and I must share a vision that took my breath away
Well, not really snow, but a shower of cherry blossom flowers
that added up to 'pink snow'
and in a instant I flashed to a memory that is dear:
I had wanted a weeping cherry tree for several years
I would swoon and sigh every time, (out on a drive) my husband and I would pass one.
I made my desire known to him,
which is something I did not do that often
...actually ask for something.
My upbringing I guess.
One of six children and the oldest,
you learn early on that it might be difficult
for your Mom & Dad to give you all the things you desired
so you kept the requests for ONLY the things that you really,
Such was the case of the weeping cherry tree.
And every Spring, I made my desire known to the husband.
One Mother's Day my dream was fulfilled MUCH to my delight.
The traditional Mother's Day breakfast.
(laughing over the clatter and chatter of the Dad and children making this feast)
was accompanied by cards the little birds made
many I still have....
and then...the object of my long desire
was pointed out to me in our yard.....
....my beloved weeping cherry tree.
Now, many years later,
and living far, far from the more gentle climes of Connecticut
I once again desire the cherry blossoms
but I must DREAMTRAVEL to have my 'fix'
The delightful photos from Sandy of mylulabelles brings me back to that sweetest
of Mother's Days, and my beloved weeping cherry tree.
