This is the view outside our main guest bedroom. There are two windows and they both overlook our woods. The boardwalk you see leads around to the back of the house up a ramp to the deck to the backdoor. My husband built it 21 years ago for my mother's wheelchair while I cared for her during her last illness. . . .
My mother has been in Heaven now for over 20 years. I often think of the little things she did for me and how they grew to be so much a part of my life. She loved to sing and often just sang about the house and so did I which led to my husband giving me singing lessons one Christmas which led to some wonderful experiences in a Madrigal group; how she gave me a guitar one Christmas which led to my starting a small group to accompany our singing in church; the windowsill herb garden that lead to all my other gardens; the piano lessons she gave me as a child that led to my getting my own piano as soon as I could after I left home that lead to my sons taking lessons that led to one of them getting a music degree in college and even though it is not his profession it is one of his greatest creative outlets; when I left home she wrote me weekly letters which I reciprocated which probably led to my eventually keeping a daily journal which has lead to my keeping several Web Journals.
So my question this month is can you look back on some little thing someone did for you that has grown into something beyond what you ever thought it would?
After my mother passed on I dedicated the garden along the boardwalk to her. I planted some Astilbe and a few Hosta, and now look at it. . . .
...and on around to the back of the house. . . .
